About Trade Waste
Trade waste is a term used to describe liquid waste that is more variable and diverse in volume and quality than typical household wastewater. Trade waste places additional demand and impact on the sewerage system over and above residential waste. The increased demand increases the risks to the community, the environment and TasWater.
Trade waste disposal to sewer is managed by TasWater to minimise the risks and potential for increased costs associated with the transport and treatment of trade waste. TasWater is committed to working with our trade waste customers to ensure the quantity and quality of trade waste discharged is acceptable for discharge to the sewerage system.
