A cesspool emptier is a vacuum truck which removes contaminated water from hollows such as cesspools and sewage tanks and carries it to a disposal point.

In commercial aviation and other industries, this type of vehicle is called a honey wagon, and is a large tanker designed to collect waste from such facilities as airplane toilets and portable toilets.
