Where you can discharge commercial liquid waste
Tankered domestic waste
As well as trade wastes we also provide disposal services for waste collection providers who serve domestic customers not connected to our sewage network.
We accept disposal of cess pools, septic tanks and chemical toilets at specific sites across our region.
We'll process your application as soon as possible and if successful we will provide you with:
- a registration certificate
- logger access fobs for your vehicle fleet
You will be approved and provided access to discharge domestic waste only.
You can discharge domestic waste collected from:
- septic tanks
- chemical toilets
You can’t discharge any waste derived from commercial or industrial processes or customers.
You must go through a different approval process to discharge commercial waste at our treatment sites.
Only some of our sites are equipped to handle commercial waste.
There is a standing charge of £8.27 that applies to each tanker load discharged.
Price is then calculated based on the strength and cubic metreage of the waste that you need to discharge.
All liquid domestic waste is measured by a logging device that calculates its volume and strength.
Waste strength is based on the amount of non-dissolved solids in the liquid waste.
Prices up to 31 March 2021

Music festivals, country fairs, motorsport events. All great summer traditions, and all great producers of liquid waste. Every year hundreds of these events take place across our region, which is why we work closely with event organisers and their contractors to help them handle their waste water challenges.
We're open for business!
Our regulator Ofwat is changing its regulatory approach for the treatment sludge and Water and Waste Water companies are now able to import and export sludges without boundaries.
Our capacity data is updated daily at 8am and shows how much waste is being processed at each site, as well as how much space we have for more waste at any point over the next 7 days.
