Application for Trade Waste Discharge
Hamilton City Council Trade Waste & Wastewater Bylaw 2016
The new bylaw sets out what is and is not allowed into the city’s wastewater, gives clarity on everyone’s responsibilities in using the wastewater system, and provides clear direction to trade waste consent holders and tankered-waste operators on how they will need to manage any discharges to the system. For further information view the Trade Waste Regulations page
