Proposed Trade Wastes Bylaw

With a new Wastewater Treatment Plant currently being built, Whanganui District Council needs to have a fair and effective system of control over trade waste entering the system to ensure design performance and discharge consent conditions can be met.

Public consultation on Whanganui District Council's Proposed Trade Waste Bylaw closed on Friday 23 February 2018.

The proposed bylaw will apply to all trade premises within the Whanganui District where sewage of a non-domestic nature, including tankered waste, is discharged or likely to be discharged to the Council's sewerage system.
