The Truck Liquid Waste (TLW) program provides outreach and educational services to industrial, commercial and institutional owners and operators to help promote the proper management of liquid waste that cannot be legally discharged to the sanitary sewer or the stormwater collection system.
The program is a pollution prevention initiative aimed towards proper management of non-domestic liquid waste and has been active region-wide for over 15 years.
The goals of the program are to:
- promote pollution prevention
- promote informed decisions by the industrial, commercial and institutional sector on liquid waste disposal
- encourage the development of appropriate and cost effective facilities
- encourage and increase compliance with regulations
The objectives of the program are to ensure that TLW is handled and disposed of in an appropriate and responsible manner to protect the environment and public health.
