What I should not dispose through the sewage system
Dear fellow citizen,
The smooth operation of the sewerage system solely depends on its correct usage. For this reason we wish to inform you as to which items are prohibited to be disposed of in the system. The aim is to achieve a trouble free system with the minimum risk of blockages.
Storm water and groundwater
Strictly forbidden. Storm water should be channelled to the nearest street gully or to absorption pits, together with groundwater.
Oils and fats
Best practices require that oils and fats be collected in containers and disposed off in the garbage. If large quantities of oils and fats are collected, then grease traps should be installed.
Food Food should only be disposed off in the garbage.
Diapers and sanitary towels Should be disposed off in the garbage, so as to prevent sewer blockages.
Sand Sand traps should be installed where large quantities of sand are present (eg. hotels and holiday apartments, car washes)
Paints and other chemical substances Disposal in the sewerage system is strictly prohibited.
By connecting your premises to the town sewerage system, you have contributed to the betterment of the natural environment and the quality of life in Larnaca.
The Larnaca Sewerage Board’s objective is to complete the sewerage works and to ensure the smooth operation of the city’s sewerage system.
