Charges cover the cost of transporting, monitoring, administrating and treating liquid waste generated by commercial and industrial businesses.
They are levied to entities who have applied for, or who currently hold, a trade waste agreement or consent with Greater Western Water.
Trade waste charges are separate to water and sewage usage and service charges that are also usually applicable for commercial and industrial properties.
Unless otherwise agreed the Occupier of the land, from which the trade waste is discharged, is the entity who is required to hold the trade waste agreement or consent. Exceptions apply for customers who hold a Trade Waste Owner’s Consent*.
