3 Reasons to Install Grease Traps for Waste Disposal July 25, 2018

3 Reasons to Install Grease Traps for Waste Disposal, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

As a restaurant owner, you probably know grease and water don’t mix. That’s why it’s crucial to avoid washing grease down the drain and, instead, use traps as grease waste disposals. Below, First Quality Environmental shares a few reasons why you should install this tool in your restaurant.

3 Reasons to Install Grease Traps for Waste Disposal

1. Keep Drain Lines Clean

Grease traps work much like modern-day septic systems, but they’ve been around for over a hundred years. They can be installed by a waste management company near, but not in, the kitchen. A grease trap is a tank that allows fats, oils, and grease to separate naturally from wastewater and food solids. The tank will allow the wastewater to flow into the sewer system while the grease remains in the trap.

Without a grease trap, the fats and grease you pour down the drain would cling to the insides of pipes and create stubborn clogs. With them, you can protect your restaurant’s plumbing as well as the local sewer system. The grease will never have the opportunity to get into the municipal sewage line.

2. Make Grease Disposal Easy

Especially if your restaurant features a fryer and you produce plenty of greasy dishes, safe disposal of oils and grease can be challenging. With a grease trap, though, your job will be simplified, since you can toss it all down the drain as you would dirty dishwater. 

3. Comply With the Law

Not only are grease traps safe and convenient, they are also required by law. Since grease stuck in sewer lines could disrupt the entire city, all restaurants must be able to safely dispose of their fatty refuse. Regular grease trap cleaning is an essential part of keeping grease out of the sewer too, so stay on top of this maintenance task.
