Grease trap emptying
Grease traps are a fundamental part of any commercial kitchen or food processing plant, helping to ensure that harmful greases, fats and oils are trapped and prevented from entering the drainage system where they could cause damaging blockages. The fat and greases separates from the water and collects within the trap, floating to the top and allowing the water to flow through to the drain. Once they are cleaned, they are recharged.
Grease builds up inside the traps, eventually making them ineffective and also leading to unpleasant odours, so they need to be regularly emptied. Waste from grease traps is classified as a controlled and Environmental Health Officers will wish to see evidence that regular cleaning has been performed and the waste disposed of appropriately.
