Why Is Liquid Waste Disposal Important?

Liquid waste from businesses needs to be properly disposed of in order to avoid polluting nearby water systems, or contaminating local land. If businesses delay their waste disposal or fail to get rid of it properly, not only does this harm the environment, but it can damage the reputation of the business itself.


The Environmental Protection Act here in the UK looks at issues with waste on land, placing a duty on waste producers and waste managers to safely deal with their liquid waste so that it doesn’t damage the environment. Environment agency regulations mean that liquid waste cannot go to landfill. But, what counts as liquid waste?

Examples Of Liquid Waste

Some examples of what counts as liquid waste includes:


●     Flood water

●     Liquid food waste

●     Waste oil

●     Contaminated water

●     Sludge

●     Hazardous liquids
