Trade Waste charges for conveyance, treatment and disposal of conditional trade waste
All activities that require a Conditional trade waste consent under the Council’s Trade Waste Bylaw are liable to pay trade waste charges, which have three components:
- Volume – the amount of waste disposed through the sewer (m3)
- cBOD5 – Carbonaceous biochemical oxygen content of the trade waste (kg)
- Suspended solids – the content of solid material in the trade waste (kg)
- Conditional trade waste consents for areas outside of those listed, pay the Taupō Trade Waste rates.
Flow and load based charges for area outside of the Taupo wastewater catchment will be calculated on a case-by-case basis.
