You will require a trade waste approval if your business will need to discharge trade waste into a sewer.
Trade waste includes any liquid waste other than domestic sewage generated from business, trade, or manufacturing premises. For example, trade waste can include grease, oil, solids, heavy metals, or chemicals.
Examples of businesses that might need a trade waste approval are:
- cafes and restaurants
- abattoirs and butchers
- medical services
- vehicle and plant-related businesses
- cleaning services.
