The liquid effluent produced by commercial or industrial processes is known as trade effluent and requires special consideration for its disposal. Trade effluent can come from both large and small businesses, including, for example, car washes and launderettes.
Trade effluent is polluting and must not be discharged to the surface water system. Usually, trade effluent is released to the public foul sewerage system with the prior consent of the local sewer provider.
You may not be given consent if your trade effluent contains oil and fats, solvents, heavy metals, complex organic mixtures, flammable materials, liquids with a very high or very low pH value or other materials likely to damage the sewer, or harm people working in the sewer.
If discharge to the public sewerage system is not possible, you might consider a private treatment system which must be explicitly designed to treat all effluents connected to it.
If treatment or sewerage disposal options are not possible then, as trade effluent is regarded as liquid waste, storage and off-site disposal will be required.
County Drains are specialists in pollution and environmental control, and we are ISO 14001 certified. We offer expert advice and services to companies looking to set up or implement their environmental management policies.
We can consult with you to design your drainage systems to be ISO 14001 compliant. This is vital to ensure that trade effluent does not enter the surface water system and that you adhere to any consent to discharge authorisation.
We provide a range of services to ensure your trade effluent is contained – from tanker services, waste disposal, septic tank services, drain maintenance and repair and industrial drain cleaning.
If you are responsible for your company’s environmental management plan, give us a call on 01530 510572 to find out how we can help you meet your obligations the smart way.
