Does your business or organisation require Grease Trap Service and Maintenance?
A Professional Grease Trap Clean Service Is Essential for all Commercial Kitchens
A grease trap is the most effective way of preventing fats, oil, and grease (FOG), entering your drainage system from your commercial kitchen wash-up wastewater. Grease traps require regular service and removal of accumulated waste for environmental disposal.
The grease trap is designed to slow the flow of wastewater and allow time for the fats, oil, and grease to separate from the wastewater and remain trapped inside. The treated water then passes onwards through your drainage pipework to the main public sewer system.
The public sewer system is managed by your local water company. They have the power of enforcement to ensure that you not only have a grease management system in place and that you have it regularly serviced.
All grease traps require maintenance and removal of the trapped waste on a regular basis. This is normally between 4- and 12-week intervals depending on the size of the grease trap and the volume of your kitchen service and wash-up.
We can advise on your individual circumstance and provide a quote for the maintenance, waste removal and disposal.
Grease trap waste is regarded as a controlled waste by the Environment Agency and should be removed from your premises for environmental disposal by a licenced waste carrier. It is commercial kitchen owner’s responsibility to maintain accurate records of the maintenance and removal of the waste for inspection by the Environment Agency if asked.
We can provide a full service with grease trap maintenance service with waste removal and disposal and maintain on your behalf electronic records for inspection by the Environment Agency, Water Company, Environmental Health Officer, or landlord.
We recommend a planned maintenance service as an essential part of your effective grease control, legal responsibility, and maintenance of your drainage systems to avoid business interruption or environmental enforcement.
