Any water used to prepare or cook food, clean dishes or wash the kitchen that goes down the drain is classified as commercial waste and must be treated. All commercial waste customers pay an annual fee to cover operating costs incurred in regulating, maintaining and consulting commercial waste customers. Clients are subject to staggered fees based on their risk ranking, with the highest risk clients paying the highest fees. Cleanawater offers contracted maintenance services. Qualified personnel keep commercial waste management equipment running according to design and give you certainty about the quality of your commercial waste to keep your business compliant. These trade agreements apply to car washes, metal finishes, printers, laundries and chemical manufacturers. YVW has established a list of acceptance criteria for commercial waste from industrial customers. These criteria include parameters such as physical and chemical properties (including specific maximum levels for certain contaminants). Agreements on food and industrial waste set the conditions for pre-treatment before wastewater is discharged into the sewerage system. Clean water supplies and services trade in waste treatment equipment so that companies can comply with their waste trade agreement. YVW does not charge any fees to minor customers of commercial waste, but reserves the right to sample the waste at any time and to modify the agreement if the volume of commercial waste changes. An agreement describes the requirements your company must meet to comply with commercial waste laws.
In addition, it helps us manage the impact of food waste on the sewer system. See the costs associated with your commercial waste management contract. In a food business of any kind, the typical path to commercial waste looks like this: a non-compliance process is implemented in cases where shippers of commercial waste do not meet their legal requirements under the relevant legislation (Water Act 1989 and Water (Commercial Waste) Regulations 2014) or the requirements of their commercial waste agreement or consent. Commercial waste is wastewater generated by industrial, commercial or food industry activities. This water contains more pollutants than household waste, some of which can be dangerous. Commercial waste may contain chemicals, metals, high organic fillers, greases, greases or detergents. Oil skimmers remove oil from wastewater streams. Depending on the flow of the water and the indication of the oil content in the water released, different types of skimmers are available. New and existing commercial waste customers who wish to extend their agreement will pay an application fee, which will contribute to the costs of assessing the impact of commercial waste discharge on wastewater and treatment systems. Small trade waste agreements apply to companies that send small amounts of commercial waste similar to domestic wastewater.
Businesses classified as dumping smaller commercial waste may change over time at Yarra Valley Water`s discretion. YVW may carry out a risk assessment itself or ask the customer to carry out one. Risk assessments identify potential problems related to the generation of commercial waste and mitigating factors that could be implemented. As soon as commercial waste enters the sewer system, it is discharged into wastewater treatment plants. In these plants, contaminants are removed from the water and clean water is released into the environment. At Cleanawater, we pride ourselves on being problem solvers. We can evaluate your business and help you find the best solution to ensure your compliance.
