Wastewater discharge in Sydney

Supplier News

SYDNEY Water operates a trade waste program to protect the health of the community and the environment.

The trade waste program ensures that wastewater discharged by industrial and commercial operations meets strict standards.

By meeting trade waste requirements, Sydney Water’s customers are helping to protect public health and the environment and reduce sewerage system operating costs.

All industrial and commercial customers within the Sydney Water area of operations are required to seek permission to discharge wastewater to the sewers.

Industrial customers enter into negotiated formal agreements with Sydney Water while commercial customers must lodge an application form for a permit.

Commercial customers may now apply at Sydney Water’s website although the printed form must still be lodged with Sydney Water.

The availability of the Commercial trade waste permit application online allows Sydney Water customers flexibility to complete the form at a time and place convenient to them. This also provides a simple way for plumbers and suppliers to complete trade waste applications in their own time.

The online application form is simple to complete and customers are guided through the process by a series of drop down selection boxes.

Once complete the form should be printed and signed by the customer before being mailed or faxed to Sydney Water or lodged at any Quick Check agent.

Visit Sydney Water’s website and select Customer Services and click on Trade Waste to complete your Commercial Permit Application form.
