Details from Water Corporation on grease trap cleaning Perth


To quote the Water Corporation website here:


“Your grease arrestor (simply another word for a grease trap or grease interceptor) is not a bottomless pit and the grease and sludge captured must be pumped out regularly to ensure it keeps working effectively.


Proper maintenance of the grease arrestor, including regular pump-out, is your responsibility and is a condition of your trade waste permit.


Pump-out of grease arrestors and disposal of the captured sludge, although a pre-condition of the trade waste service, isn’t provided as part of the service.


You need to make separate arrangements for grease arrestor pump-out through a licensed waste cartage contractor.

The contractor will charge you for the cleaning of the grease arrestor and transportation of the waste to an appropriate waste treatment and disposal facility.


They may also on-charge the costs of final treatment and disposal of this sludge. Alternatively, the treatment facility operator may invoice treatment and disposal costs separately.


Pump out frequency

“We set the frequency of cleaning the grease arrestor and pumping out grease and sludge and it typically depends on the type and size of the grease arrestor and the nature and volume of the wastewater produced by your operation.


The pump-out frequency of new connections is determined when we assess your application to discharge trade waste.


You must adhere to the pump-out frequency nominated for your grease arrestor.


If you don’t have a frequency set, or if the volume or nature of your wastewater changes as your business evolves, then you must contact us to request a reassessment.”
