Trade waste

If your business is involved in manufacturing, food preparation or other commercial processes that generate wastewater, you need to apply to us for consent to discharge your trade waste into our sewerage system.

This is because trade waste contains chemicals, grease, oils, solids and other substances that need to be properly managed to protect the health and safety of employees, customers, the general community and the environment.

We understand filling in forms can often be time consuming and sometimes daunting. The following step-by-step guide takes you through the application process and provides more information to help you manage your trade waste responsibly.
