Disposal procedures for domestic waste

Once set up as a Southern Water domestic waste customer:

  • Drivers entering a Southern Water reception site must go only to the Cess reception facility. (No other point of the site is available)
  • After connecting pipes, the driver must use the key fob to log on to the system
     
  • Whilst discharging, the driver should remain with the vehicle to monitor the discharge and ensure that there is no possibility of run-on into the system
     
  • Drivers are responsible for ensuring that the isolating valve is closed before disconnecting pipes and leaving site
     
  • All spillages must be cleared up. If this is not possible they must be reported to the site office or the Tankered Waste team
     
  • All damage to site equipment by drivers must be reported and will be charged for
     
  • Drivers must not touch/interfere with any machinery on site for health and safety reasons
     
  • Sites must be vacated by the closure time. The loggers will shut down at this time and you must make sure you have finished discharging by this time
     
  • All drivers must wear the appropriate PPE.

The user moves the highlighted bar using the four cursor keys located on the front of the V5. The up and down keys will move the highlighted selection around one at a time.

Once the transaction details have been entered and accepted, the V5 will then open the import valve and when the valve is fully open, the screen below will appear. This screen shows the user the amount of cumulative flow that has occurred during the transaction and the final average solids concentration.

The transaction will progress until the flow stops. When the flow has stopped the valve will close and the transaction will end. The transaction details will be held on the V5 screen for a period of time until the valve closes to allow the user to check the data.
