First of all, what is a grease trap?

Before moving on with our grease trap cleaning services in Brisbane, we must first discuss what a grease trap is. Basically, a grease trap interceptor – or just a grease trap – is a device commonly used by the food industry to prevent oil, grease, fats, or other types of food waste from entering the sewerage system. As a result of it “trapping” the said waste, you remove the risk of blocking the sewerage or piping system.


Importance of having it cleaned

You, as a business, have to keep in mind the cleaning and maintenance of your grease trap. If you neglect these mentioned, it is almost certain that your grease trap will not perform the way you intend it to.

More specifically, your grease trap will end up becoming more clogged by the minute. Additionally, it will also produce a foul smell that might envelop your place.

As a result, it is best to have your grease trap cleaned regularly.


Grease trap Brisbane requirements

Depending on where your business is located and your local council, you will need to have your commercial grease trap in Brisbane pumped out (cleaned/pumped out /serviced are interchangeable terms for grease trap pump outs) on a regular schedule every c. 8 weeks or less often (i.e., perhaps only every 6 months).

The schedule will be worked out by your local water authority based on the size of the trap (in litres) and the type of business you operate.

If you do not comply with the mandated schedule, your business will be liable for potential fines from the regulatory authorities as well as potential bad smells and hygiene issues.

Note: an emergency grease trap cleaning performed at late notice is considerably more expensive and can be avoided by complying with your schedule.

Also, Waster-provided grease trap Brisbane services will ensure you are in full compliance with all legislation and that the correct paperwork and notification of service completion is provided to the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP).
