About Us

Welcome to Alpena Septic Service, where.. We’re #1 at #2!

My name is Lynn Gillespie (formally Lynn Abbott) and I have been around the septic service business almost my entire life. My father, Bernard Abbott who is retired now, had his own business for 30 years. So, I guess its safe to say I learned a lot from him.  We actually have some 3rd generation customers that we service.

My husband Rich Gillespie, who is a Licensed Builder and a Nationally Certified Septic Inspector, and I have nurtured Alpena Septic for the last 18 years.  The company has grown from a single-woman owned business with one pumper truck in 1997 to our current operation of 5 full time employees and 3 pumper trucks.  We do it all, all year long, from tank pumpings and installations to porta-jon rentals for festivals and contractors.  With our newly aquired LIW License, we have branched off and now can service local municipalities and industries by hauling and disposing of their liquid indutrial waste.

We are a local company that keeps it local.  What do you mean, you ask?  Well, we purchase our supplies locally, whether it’s for the office, tires for our truck fleet, or the sand & gravel we use for installations of new systems, it’s all local.

Our office light might be off, but you can guarantee that our phone will always be answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  No job is too big or too small, so give Alpena Septic Service a call at 989-727-4205.
