We really appreciate that you came out so fast and for being so nice on the phone — the gentleman who pumped our tank was great!

Petersham Sanitary Service came right away when I needed them. They were on-time and friendly, gave me tips on keeping my system in shape, and left my yard the way they found it. I’ll definitely be calling them again!
