About Us

Steve’s Septic Service is a locally owned business for over 30 years that was originated in McKinleyville, California by husband and wife team Steve and Mary Talloy. They started Steve’s Septic Service out of their home in the early 1980’s with one pump truck. Realizing that the subject matter needed a little humor, Mary came up with the slogan “#1 In The #2 Business!” which has continued to be a humorous catchy phrase in our area.

In the early 1990’s Steve and Mary were ready to move out of the area to be closer to their growing family. The business was offered to their neighbors Ron and Vicki Turner. An offer that Ron couldn’t pass up, the Turner family took on the pumping business. With their hard work, dedication and commitment to achieving customer satisfaction, Steve’s Septic Service became a well established business in the community.

After 11 years Ron and Vicki decided to slow down and enjoy a retirement so Steve’s Septic Service was sold to their office manager Teresa Green. Having been raised in Humboldt County with previous business ownership experience, Teresa has been able to continue to provide the same quality service that Humboldt County residences have come to expect from Steve’s Septic Service.

In December of 2016 Wes Green brought his 45 years of septic system installation experience and combined it with Teresa Green’s existing pumping service at Steve’s Septic Service.  Steve’s Septic Service is the only Septic focused business in Humboldt that can do it all: septic system installation, ongoing service and pumping, repairs and even real estate inspections making it convenient for you, the customer. Steve’s Septic Service operates three pump trucks, each with a 2,500 gallon capacity, to get the job done right the first time.

Locally owned and operated Steve’s Septic Service, adding more services and making them truly #1 in the #2 business.
