What is Considered Sewage?
Sewage is any wastewater or solids that is disposed through the sewer lines of your home or work property.
Most of wastewater inside the sewer lines comes from bathtub’s, kitchen sinks, showers and toilets. Most of the time sewage goes directly into separate treatment centers but some homes have septic tanks which collect the raw sewage and have to be emptied out once full.
