What Is Liquid Waste?

  • Chemicals - This is a broad term and can cover a wide range of substances. Things like pesticides, bleach or household cleaning products fall within this range. They can be extremely hazardous and should be disposed of appropriately.

  • Detergents - Household and commercial detergents can cause extreme damage to wildlife, so they must be professionally disposed of.

  • Sanitary Waste - This includes any liquid passing through the sewage system. It can include organic materials such as leaves or mud that get washed into sewers by water runoff.

  • Petroleum products & Vehicle Maintenance Waste - things like petrol, motor oil, antifreeze, paints, washer solution & brake fluid must all be disposed of with due care
