Treating our organic waste can be a difficult task. Thankfully, modern times have enabled a number of different options which are all alternatives to traditional public sewer systems.
These three types are generally:

Cesspits are also known as cesspools. These are some of the most common waste tanking options. Cesspits consist of a large tank (normally found on the property and constructed of concrete rings and a dome) which is used to store excess household waste from bathrooms, showers and laundry rooms.
One of the advantages of this option is that cesspits can last for a very long time. Depending on their size (and the amount of waste), they may not need to be emptied often. However, the sewage waste removal will eventually be needed by a professional contractor or the local authorities.
A septic tank is another unique waste removal solution. In this case, its primary mechanism employs certain types of bacteria. In turn, these will break down solid waste. They require little maintenance and can hold a great deal of sewage at any given time. Cement versions are likewise quite durable.
However, there are also disadvantages of the septic tank option. Notably, these can cost significantly more than a cesspit. Also, premature filling of the tub can cause the entire system to clog. Any chemicals which may enter the tank (such as detergents or bleach) can harm the bacteria and impede their digestion processes.
Although sewage treatment plants are generally seen within large-scale waste drainage systems, there are some households which will employ these very same principles within their property. These plants will separate the solid waste (sludge) from the fluid waste stream. This is done by chemical, biological and mechanical processes.
One of the main benefits of this option is that little build up of waste will occur, meaning that pumping is generally not required often. Secondly, the end products are environmentally safe and may even be used as a natural form of fertiliser. Still, the main concern with such plants is their obvious cost and maintenance issues.
Smaller properties may not be able to accommodate their size. As primary, secondary and tertiary treatments are required, the entire process will normally need to be overseen by a third-party provider from time to time.
These are three of the most common (and effective) waste tanking options which are currently available to property owners. Appreciating the benefits and drawbacks of each one will enable the correct decisions to be made at the right times.
