(4) 

‘tonnes of incoming waste’ means the weight of all incoming waste, within a calendar year, to a facility that is further dealt within the defined recovery or disposal activity performed by the same facility and which excludes waste quantities transferred to other facilities without treatment;

(5) 

‘cubic metres of incoming waste-water’ means the volume of water that enters the treatment operations of the relevant waste-water treatment facility;

(6) 

‘tonnes of organic solvent’ means the weight of the total amount of solvents consumed in the operations performed within the facility;
