Septic Tank Removal Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction unit cost for the removal of an old septic tank.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure 3 1/3 hours of backhoe time (including operator), and 7 hours of unskilled laborer time.
The price covers removal of the tank and placing it on a truck for disposal, but no hauling or disposal costs.
The price does not include backfilling. If you aren't installing a new tank in the same location, add a truckload of soil or bank run gravel, plus some backfilling and tamping time.
No suggestion. Enter the number of tanks that need to be removed.
