Trade Waste

What is Trade Waste?

Trade waste is any liquid that is or may be discharged from a trade Premises or tanker to the Council’s sewerage wastewater system. Currently, businesses who discharge ‘trade waste’ into our wastewater network are charged in a different way than our residential ratepayers. Community feedback to date supports a user pays approach. Following the implementation of the 2021 Trade Waste Bylaw, those who discharge large amounts of waste, or highly concentrated waste, would pay to cover their relevant contribution to the wastewater system.  

Trade Waster Bylaw

Consultation on the proposed changes to the Trade Waste Bylaw closed on April 13, 2021. 

The Central Hawke’s Bay District Council would like to thank the community for taking the time to submit feedback and ideas for the Three Waters Bylaw Review

For the four Bylaws Council consulted with the community on, thCentral Hawke’s Bay District Council has moved to adopt the Water Supply, Stormwater, Trade Waste and Wastewater Bylaws. These will come into force on 13 May 2021 and the following 2018 bylaws will be revoked: 

  • Part 07: Water Supply 

  • Part 21: Stormwater 

  • Part 22: Wastewater 

  • Part 23: Trade Waste 

You can view the updated 2021 Bylaw along with the tracked changes from the previous bylaw in the links above. 

There are many options and combinations of options regarding charge rate. This Trade Waste Calculator summarizes the effect of the major options on industry charge rate which you can modify where the text is coloured red. This is intended to give clarity into council process and provide an indication of what industry might be paying through Trade Waste charges in the future.
