(FOG) Fats, Oils and Grease in Wastewater

Never dispose of solid waste by permitting them to be washed down floor and sink drains. Install strainers on sinks, dishwashers and floor drains to prevent solids from entering grease traps.

  • Scrape food items off dishes and into a trash can prior to placing dishes in the dishwasher.
  • Waste food grinders generally should not be installed ahead of a grease trap since the ground food will fill the trap with sludge. Many restaurants have installed grinders to allow disposal of food waste in the drainage system.
  • Never pour used cooking oil down drains as they can cause grease traps and drain lines to malfunction.
