The Trade Waste Agreement is a document that allows your business to discharge trade waste into the sewer.
It details what you must do to comply with trade waste legislation and helps us correctly manage the sewerage system.
What do I need to do as a new business?
Prior to purchasing or starting your business, you must confirm if there is a compliant tradewaste apparatus at the property for your business activities. Please contact Trade Waste department to discuss requirements.
You must have a Trade Waste Agreement in place before you start to trade.
The Trade Waste Agreement is required to be in the business owners’ name, and is not transferrable. A new Agreement must be established for new business owners.
It is an offence to discharge trade waste into the sewerage system without a Trade Waste Agreement and financial penalties do apply.
Existing premises should check with us to see if there is a current Trade Waste Agreement in place and whether it needs to be updated or renewed.
