Yarra Valley Water Trade Waste Agreement

At Cleanawater, we pride ourselves on being a problem solver. We can evaluate your business and help you find the best solution to keep you in compliance. Commercial waste is all liquid waste, including clean wash water used during the activity and discharged into the sewers. It is important that liquid waste from companies is properly exploited, as it is high in volume, and impurities can be dangerous. Both grocery and industrial commercial waste agreements set pre-treatment conditions before effluents are discharged into sewers. Cleanawater`s procurement and services operate with waste treatment facilities to enable companies to comply with their trade agreement on waste. An annual contractual fee is levied on the basis of the risk assigned to each customer and a discharge charge is calculated on the basis of the volume of water and the mass of pollutants. A grease trap is a sanitary device that filters fats, oils and food solids that go down the runoff into the sewers and store it in a tank so that it can be pumped later. All food companies that produce commercial waste must install a grease trap. When filling out a commercial waste agreement request, customers must choose one of three types of commercial waste.

Each has its own tariffs, permitted quantities and criteria limits. This can range from (but not only to) non-compliance with models if commercial waste release is not considered to be in accordance with the terms of the agreement or agreement or agreement, to a customer who does not provide meter readings, sample results or maintenance or calibration certificates at the required frequency. It is a company that produces commercial waste in quantities similar to household waste (for example. B retail offices, some grocery stores and retail stores). Landfill charges cover the cost of processing the spill and depend on the amount of commercial waste (measured in kilolitres) and the mass of pollutants contained in the waste (measured in kilograms). As soon as commercial waste enters the sewers, it is directed to sanitation facilities. These facilities eliminate water pollution and discharge clean water into the environment. YVW may conduct a risk assessment on its own or require the client to do so.

Risk assessments break down potential problems associated with commercial waste generation and mitigating factors that could be implemented. PH control systems control the pH of commercial wastewater entering the pipe system. A correct pH is important because a ph output can lead to an acceleration of bacterial activity and the formation of odours.
