Trade waste

Trade waste is waste from commercial and industrial premises other than domestic sewage and wastewater.

Guidelines for all new, existing and potential trade waste dischargers can be found in the Council's Trade Waste Bylaw.

Application and consent
Contact or visit the Council for a trade waste discharge application. It is also important to discuss with Council whether your business requires a trade waste consent, and if so, what specific type.

If your business has been approved and a trade waste consent issued, the Council will then visit and inspect your business premises annually to ensure that discharges comply with the conditions of the consent.
