On 1 July, 2016, the Water Corporation changed the way it manages fines and penalties for non-compliance with the installation or upgrading of grease arrestors (also known as grease traps).
All retail food businesses including cafes and restaurants must hold a current trade waste permit and comply with all permit conditions.
Business owners who apply for a trade waste permit and are required to install or upgrade their grease arrestor will have 12 months to comply. If they have not complied, within the first 90 days, they will be subject to a daily charge of up to $22.39 per trading day for the remainder of the 12 month period. After that time, if they still have not complied, they may be subject to prosecution, additional fines of up to $50,000, $2,000 a day and/or disconnection from the Water Corporation’s wastewater system.
