As a guide this application is for chemical toilet waste discharged into the sewerage system at a dump point on a property (e.g. caravan park, bus depot).
If you are leasing a property to conduct your business, you must obtain the land owner's consent prior to applying for approval to discharge liquid trade waste into our sewerage system.
