A new charge, Sewage Disposal was introduced on Friday 1 October 2021 to replace pedestal charges and some Trade Waste charges.
As there’s generally no meter at a property to measure sewage discharge, non-residential customers in all regions incur Sewage Disposal charges based on their Water Usage multiplied by a Discharge Factor percentage.
Sewage Disposal charges help pay for the collection, transport and treatment costs associated with below Domestic Strength sewage.
Trade Waste charges apply to above Domestic Strength sewage.
