We have our initial SQF certification audit in 2 months and I am hoping to get some direction on wastewater disposal.
We are a coffee roasting and packaging operation. We utilize 4 portable handwashing stations at each of the 4 entry points to our production are, and we are trying to figure out the best place to drain these when the wastewater tank needs emptied. The only areas where we have floor drains that we can get these sinks to are in the production area and a storage room off the side of the packaging area.
My question is, would it be acceptable to place a mop sink over the floor drain in the storage room and place a partition between that and the items stored in the room? We store packaging, utensils and retain samples in this room, all of which are sealed and/or covered. If anyone has a better solution to this we would love to hear them!
Thank you for your help!
