Waste Management and Recycling

Crest personnel are very careful about waste is disposed and we work with customers to put recycling systems in place.

THE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ACT requires Chemicals to be disposed of into the sewerage system.

What is the ‘Sewerage System’?

Quite simply, a Sewerage System is a toilet system.

When your used cleaning chemicals are tipped (disposed) into a sewerage system (toilet) they go in pipes underground to a treatment plant, so the chemicals are removed from the water. Then, the water is safe to go into the sea; it will not poison fish, birds or sea life.

If you were to tip your used chemicals into the drain outside, the chemicals will not be taken from the water. It will go straight into the sea and will poison fish, birds and sea life.
