About Us

Barry and Rachel

It was in the early 1970’s when Barry Bartlett who had been working as a carpenter in Weaverville, decided to shift gears and start a new career path. He came across an old septic truck-made a deal with the owner and began pumping septic tanks- for $50 each! Many years later, Barry decided to move his business and family to Chico- and that is where Chico Septic began.

In 2014, Barry decided to retire and his daughter, Rachel, proudly took over the family business. She was only 5 when she went on her first septic job and later at the age of 16 began helping on weekends and during school vacations. Although Rachel already had her own business, Johnny on the Spot Portable Toilets, she was excited to take on a new venture allowing her dad to retire.
