I would suggest that you take the boat to a pump out station and pump it out yourself. Then fill the tank with fresh water and pump it out again. Keep doing this until you don't see anything but clear water come out as you pump it. The last time I pumped out of my tanks I flushed it 5 times.
Another thing that helps to clean things out is to pump out the tank, fill it about 1/3 or so with freshwater, and then go sailing in some chop for an hour or so to get the water in the tank really sloshing around. After that, go right back to the pump-out station (i.e., don't give the contents much time to settle) and pump it out and rinse it a couple of times. In general, try not to leave waste in the tank any longer than necessary to keep the crud at the bottom to a minimum.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
