Pindula News presents the local government’s statement:


ALL industrial and commercial properties generating trade effluent and discharging it directly or indirectly (through manholes) into the municipal wastewater system are with effect from 1 January 2022, required to apply for a renewable Trade Effluent Discharge License (TEDL) at an annual fee of US$500 (or $ZWL equivalent) in terms of Environmental Management Act (EMA) Chapter 20:21 of 2002 Section 59(1).
