Grease Trap Supply & Installation
Attention all Commercial – Food companies.
Have you considered how to correctly dispose of greasy waste?
To discharge trade waste, you are required by law to have a trade waste agreement or consent with City West Water.
The Greasy Waste Program outlines requirements for food establishments to:
- ensure a licensed plumber installs appropriately sized and constructed grease traps, or similar oil and fat separation systems
- get an EPA-licensed waste collector to pump out your grease trap according to the required frequency specified in your trade waste agreement
- follow waste management guidelines to prevent illegal dumping to sewer.
How to improve the effectiveness of your grease trap performance?
- scraping plates and food containers into bins
- installing low-water-flow washing devices and woks
- disposing unwanted and used fats to an appropriate waste collector
A well maintained grease trap will trap fats, oil and grease as well as food particles, greatly reducing the discharge of these items into the sewer system and preventing blockages from occurring.
Here are some photos of a recent grease trap installed by Pulis Professional Plumbing.
Grease traps are plumbing devices designed to separate fats, oils and grease (FOGs) before they enter the wastewater system. Oils become solid when they cool, which can cause drain blockages. Also, high volumes of oil from kitchens and restaurants can overwhelm sewage treatment facilities and result in the release of untreated sewage into the environment.
Councils and water authorities are strict about the proper installation of grease traps in Melbourne, resulting in a process enshrouded by stringent regulations. There are a variety of different sizes and models of grease traps available to suit your requirements.
