The following fixtures and products are acceptable for pre-treating your waste:
Passive grease arrestors
Active grease separators
Pits and traps
Chemical and biological additives
Filters, macerators and water based paint cleaning systems
Food waste disposal
Food waste disposal units (also known as macerators or garbage grinders) are under-sink devices that grind food waste into small particles.
Under Water Services Regulations, you're prohibited to install or run food waste disposal units. Food waste is better disposed of via the solid waste disposal system.
Commercial food waste management
Commercial food waste management machines generate trade waste of varying quality and quantity. If you plan to install a commercial food waste management machine (that either dehydrates, dewaters or digests food waste) then you need to understand the trade waste approval requirements for each of these types of machines prior to connecting to our wastewater system.
Food waste management from commercial operations
Unapproved fixtures or products
If you install unapproved fixtures or products that don't meet our standards, you'll be required to replace these at your own expense.
If you're proposing to install an unapproved fixture or product, we'll firstly need to review this along with your trade waste permit application. You may also need to clearly demonstrate that the fixture or product is suitable for its intended use by submitting a trade waste pre-treatment product approval application form.
