Metro Vancouver is reviewing aspects of the Trucked Liquid Waste Program, including sections in the Sewer Use Bylaw No. 299, 2007, which regulate the discharge of trucked liquid waste at Metro Vancouver facilities.
Metro Vancouver is committed to engaging with stakeholders that have the potential to be impacted by changes to the Trucked Liquid Waste Program. During the review process, staff will seek input on:
- Administrative changes and updates to language, including definitions
- What wastes must use trucked liquid waste facilities, what wastes haulers can discharge directly into the wastewater collection system and the requirements to be allowed to do so
- New regulations for sani-dump operators
- Clarifying manifesting requirements for haulers
- Policy development for out of region trucked liquid waste
- Educational tools
Initial engagement began in December 2019 with a feedback session for trucked liquid waste haulers. Project notification and invitations to participate in the feedback session were sent to approximately 70 industry representatives.

In spring 2020, web questionnaires were launched for Haulers and Non-Domestic Generators with Trucked Waste Authorizations to share feedback about Metro Vancouver's Trucked Liquid Waste Program and their organizations' needs and interests. These questionnaires were open for responses until June 29, 2020. Thank you to all who participated.
Beginning in fall 2019, Metro Vancouver will work with trucked liquid waste haulers and other industry representatives to seek input as part of the program review process.
