Understanding trade waste can help you make sure your business complies with our requirements.
Trade waste is liquid wastewater from a commercial or industrial entity that enters the sewer system. This includes all water that is used for the preparation or cooking of food, washing dishes or cleaning, that goes down the drain.
To protect the sewer system some trade waste may need to be treated before it is discharged. Treatment might include removing harmful chemicals or fats or can correct the characteristics of the wastewater, like its pH or temperature.
