Dear Valued Herring Customer,  

Herring continues to be open for business and ready to help with all of your septic issues and problems. We continue to be vigilant and compliant with all rules and regulations. We take the safety of our workers and customers very seriously. As everyone is aware, the rules for engagement for different businesses vary from establishment to establishment. If you have any questions about how Herring will engage with you, please don't hesitate to call our office at 845-226-5405. We are making every effort to make this as easy as possible for normal septic, portable toilet and grease trap service as well as septic and grease trap problems you have to face.

Herring recommends scheduling your regular septic pumping, if you are due. We understand you may have a tighter budget than normal. However, delaying pumping could lead to much more expensive issues down the road so if you can, we recommend to keep your schedule.

Herring has portable toilets and sinks available for construction sites and events, however we deliver them with the understanding that groups will comply with state regulations and take no responsibility for maintaining a COVID-19 free surface. We will clean, sanitize and maintain the rented portable equipment based on our regular service and can provide additional sanitation measures for an additional cost. Please contact our office to discuss your needs.

The real estate market is quite busy right now and we have had many requests for Septic inspections. Please be aware we are performing septic inspections and are doing so at a rapid pace. Please call our office to schedule at any time. 845-226-5405

Customers are discouraged from visiting us on site but we are happy to discuss your septic questions via phone or FaceTime. 

As this progresses and we field more of your calls and questions, we expect our phone lines may become more limited. If you have any problem contacting us and would like to order portable toilets, septic or grease trap service or repairs, you can do so at our website under the Request a Quote section of our website, found here:

Septic Work and Social Distancing

To limit contact with our workers to comply with Social Distancing, we are requesting you pay by credit card or leave a check on your property and let us know where it is. If you normally stop by our office to pay your bill, pick up enzymes or say hello we ask that you refrain from doing so until this crisis passes. You can purchase enzymes on our website here - - and we are happy to process your credit card payment over the phone for all services. Just call us in the office at 845-226-5405.

Keep Your Stress Level Down! Avoid Extra Problems!

We are getting calls for emergency backups from homeowners, nursing homes and businesses at a higher rate than typical. What we are finding is that you are flushing wipes, paper towels and other non-toilet tissue items into your septic. This can cause backups to your system, as it is not built to deal with these items. Don’t believe the “Septic Safe to Flush” marketing on these products. Our job list proves it’s just that - marketing. You can read more about this on our website here -

When We need to enter your home

For some rare situations, we will need to enter your home. After letting one of our people into your home please keep a safe distance (6-8 feet). You can also leave us a key or allow us access through the basement/garage if you prefer not to be home while we are there.

We wish everyone peace and comfort. Hope everyone gets through this with minimal stress. If there is anything we can do to help you, please contact us. Even though we are separate, we are still part of the same community and Herring will continue to support this community as we always have.
