About Pellow's Liquid Waste Disposal Services

Pellows Waste disposal is a small family run business which has been established nearly 50 years, making us Cornwall's oldest liquid waste disposal contractor. Pellows specialise in Septic tank emptying in Cornwall as well as all other areas of drain maintenance and liquid waste collection, transport and disposal. Pellow's cover the whole of Cornwall and Plymouth and have many vehicles to suite even the smallest of country lanes. We operate a 24/7 telephone line for emergency and regular work, and pride ourselves on our prompt and reliable service and our extremely competitive prices.

Our drivers are some of the most experienced in the business, and share our company vision to provide the best customer care and service possible while maintaining exceptional value for money. We are able to provide on site advice on caring for your septic tank, how often it should be emptied and a very general summary of its condition.

We are proud to be able to help with any aspect of drain and septic tank maintenance, and can even offer a completely new installation as well as replacement and relief installations where a septic tank is failing or failed completely.

History of Pellow's

Pellows was founded by Richard Owen Pellow in May 1964. Richard was born at Trenoweth Mabe where he worked on a farm from the age of 14. After being called up and serving in the British Army Richard worked for Sid Knowles transport, Cooks Furniture and Sell Mex. After working for many years in the transport industry Richard was offered help to fund his own tanker, with this tanker and a handful of regular customers Pellows Waste Disposal was founded. Richard sold the business to Tony Martin in the late 1980's, under Tony's guiding hand the business has gone from strength to strength.

The business now boasts a fleet of modern and well equipped vehicles, and and enviable customer base filled with loyal returning customers.
Richard would be immensely proud if he could see the business he created still thriving nearly 50 years after it was initially started, he would be even more proud that his two grandsons; Anthony and James are actively involved in the business and will one day take control the ever expanding business.
