What is industrial waste?
Untreated industrial chemicals and hazardous / toxic waste that cannot be dumped into the City of Fayetteville sewer system. These substances, because of their chemical, physical, or biological nature, pose a potential risk to life, health, or property if they are handled improperly. Industrial waste can be dangerous to staff working on sewer pipes or in manholes. They can also inhibit the bacteriological processes at the wastewater treatment plants, contaminate biosolids, or pass through the facilities untreated into receiving streams. Industrial wastes must be pretreated before discharge or be transported for treatment or disposal.
