Dear Business Owner

If you operate a commercial food service business – such as a cafe, restaurant, takeaway shop, bakery etc – you will likely be required to have a grease trap installed (by your local water authority).

What is a grease trap? A grease trap or grease interceptor – is basically a water filled box – that traps grease when it goes down the sink. A business with a commercial kitchen produces lots of grease, oil and food scraps – and if not blocked and removed by a grease trap – they will cause plumbing issues and blockages.

When should your greasetrap be cleaned? – Cleaning grease trap frequency or schedule will be set by your local water authority – such as Sydney Water, Icon Water etc. They will calculate this based on your business activity and grease trap dimensions. This can be monthly, quarterly etc.

Commercial grease trap cleaning – involves the water being turned off – and all the contents of the trap being pumped / sucked out. Note – all the contents including oil, grease and water is removed. The grease trap cleaner then scrapes down the bottom and sides of the trap and refills it with water.

What can happen if a grease trap is not regularly cleaned or pumped out? Without grease trap maintenance and regular grease trap waste disposal – a interceptor will become clogged with grease (or backed up). This can lead to a leaking or overflowing grease trap. This can really impact a food service business.
