Depending on your business type – you may need to have your grease trap serviced between 6 and 2 times a year. The frequency is mandated by the relevant water authorities in your region. See the info page at Sydney Water (covering metro Sydney) for coverage of this. The schedule is decided by these authorities so you do not need to shop around for varying info.
If you have a 1,500 or say 3,000 litre trap, that amount will be collected when the trap is cleaned – i.e. a service will not clean a proportion of the grease trap.
Grease trap servicing is heavily regulated by the water authorities in each metro region – for example the Sydney metro region is covered by Sydney Water Wastesafe programme. The authorities set the collection frequency and ensure that only licensed agents can perform the servicing. All Waster services are fully licensed and qualified in line with all relevant legislation.
This legislation means that your service schedule is set by regulatory authorities. Waster will only deliver services in accordance with this schedule.
