Grease Trap Adelaide πŸ›’οΈ: If you operate a business serving food or preparing food such as a cafe, restaurant or hotel in Adelaide (food business could also be a factory or function suite), you will likely require a trade waste number and a grease interceptor trap to prevent your sewers and water system from becoming blocked with greasy waste from your wastewater.

We provide answers to numerous questions surrounding cleaning and pumping out of grease traps here: Grease traps cleaning. Additionally, you can also find a detailed document produced by SA Water (the organisation tasked by the South Australian Government for regulation and control of water standards) here on commercial food preparation and service and your requirements as a business operator.

What does a grease trap system do?

Businesses with grease traps in Adelaide should know this for proper maintenance and compliance with the law.

A grease interceptor or grease trap is a simple device used by food service businesses to prevent grease and oils and food waste from blocking up the waste piping system. If you operate a commercial kitchen, it is likely that you will produce much more food waste than the average business or private property.

When the wastewater from your food preparation kitchen goes down the sink, it will bring significant amounts of fats and oils with it.

This will over time block your pipes and could require a licensed plumber to rectify. Organising regular grease trap cleaning in accordance with the set schedule will prevent this from happening.

A grease trap acts to prevent this as the grease and oils will float to the top and be separated. A grease trap cleaning service will involve the trap being pumped out and scrubbed at regular intervals.

The trapped waste will then be pumped out and not cause trouble by entering the wastewater system or sewer system.

You thus have nothing to worry about as your business will always be compliant with legislation. To cancel with us, just give us 30 days’ notice in writing and you can cancel at any time.
