Trade Waste Registration

Trade waste is any commercial, educational or industrial liquid or gas waste  from a trade premise that is disposed of through our wastewater system.

This includes discharge from restaurants, takeaway outlets, food processors, car wash outlets, service stations, churches, schools, chemical manufacturers and much more.

Liquid or gas trade waste has been identified as an issue that needs to be addressed in the Queenstown Lakes District. It has a direct effect on the health of our waterways and the cost of maintenance and repairs of our infrastructure. 

From 1 July 2021, QLDC's Integrated Three Waters Bylaw 2020 and Administration Manual will be coming into effect.  

This means, all businesses that discharge any trade waste into the wastewater network will be required to register and apply for a discharge consent from 1 July 2021.

To read the bylaw and find out any more information, check out the information below.

The registration form will be available from 1 July 2021.

If you have any questions about  the process or the online application form, please contact the Trade Waste Team.
