Maintain your agreement
Once your Trade Waste Agreement is in place, it’s important that:
- you maintain equipment as per your Trade Waste Agreement, and
- you let us know of any changes to your business activities.
Yarra Valley Water undertakes random inspections to confirm that food businesses have a Trade Waste Agreement and that they are complying with the requirements.
These inspections may include inspection of the grease trap and requests to provide receipts to prove the cleaning of the grease trap (so make sure you keep your receipts).
We take this very seriously.
Failure to supply proof of cleaning your grease trap will result in non-compliance fees being charged to your account and potential further legal action.
