Mobile and Food Stall Waste

Waste Water Disposal

All waste water generated from with a mobile food van or food stalls must have a waste water collection system that can adequately hold the waste water generated. This includes waste water generated from hand washing and washing facilities. The waste water collection system must be located in an area where it cannot contaminate food or food contact surfaces. The waste water must be disposed of to a sewer drain or other approved location. 

NOTE: Disposal of waste water to the storm water system is strictly prohibited.

Council has a public dump point located at Merv Anderson Park off Scenic Highway Yeppoon near the public toilet facilities.

Waste Disposal

Mobile vans and food stalls must have an appropriate waste disposal bin with a close fitting lid to ensure all wastes are protected from vermin. Waste storage and disposal must not cause an environmental nuisance. Waste oils/fats cannot be disposed to sewer. It is the stall holder’s responsibility to dispose of their oils/fats. Collecting large quantities of oils/fats into a container for subsequent disposal off site is the preferred method.

Under 20 litres oil you can dispose (for free) at Waste Management Facilities throughout Shire. See link for locations and opening times - Landfill or Transfer and Bin Station

More than 20 litres - Dispose of through a specialist disposal company by looking in the Yellow Pages under 'Waste Reduction & Disposal'
