Class I Trade Waste consists of the following land uses that discharge wastewater to the City's sewer scheme:
- Take away shops
- Boarding/Lodging houses
- Commercial swimming pools
- Medical centres
The grease and fat contained in wastewater can accumulate both in your drains and the City's sewer system, resulting in blockages and overflows. The potential cost to your business associated with a drain or wastewater blockage can be significant, not only in finding and clearing the blockage but also the effect it has on the normal operation of your business. You should be aware that if a wastewater blockage is attributable to your business you may be required to pay the substantial cost for removing the blockage and the associated cleanup.
