Waster Grease Trap Services 🛢️: Having a grease trap cleaned is vital for food businesses such as cafès and restaurants. Waster offers grease trap services. Read this blog to learn more about this service.

New businesses or old, cafès and restaurants alike surely work hard to keep their establishments running smoothly, clean and safe. Of course, this means every day of hard work trying to achieve their goals of satisfying their customer’s needs, efficient staff management, successful inventory checking and many others.

Unfortunately, this also means that some things will be unaccounted for and left out. Grease traps, in particular, are something that cafès, restaurants or other businesses in the food industry often forget about.


What you should know about grease traps

What is a grease trap, first and foremost?

A grease trap is a system to prevent grease, food waste and other types of organic waste from clogging up the water pipes in your business and the wider water network. It prevents the grease from entering the pipes and is mandatory in Australian cities for businesses serving food. The trap filters the grease as it goes down the sink.

As it collects grease and food waste, a grease trap, without scheduled cleaning, will accumulate all the waste and let it solidify, which will cause problems that become more serious as time passes by.

Some of the problems businesses can encounter when they fail to regularly clean a grease trap are as follows:

  • A clogged grease trap full of waste damages the environment.
  • Not only does it damage the environment, but it also damages a business’s property.
  • As businesses damage the environment with their clogged grease trap, they also harm wildlife.
  • A full and clogged grease trap invites pests.

To prevent this from happening, businesses will have to regularly clean their own grease trap.

Whilst a business can go ahead and clean its own grease trap, it is a much better option to acquire professional services as this will help you save more money and is much less of a hassle than doing it themselves.

Waster, as mentioned above, offers grease trap services. Below, we give you a background on our grease trap services.

Waster: here’s our grease trap service

Waster offers its grease trap services for both small and medium businesses (SMEs). Assuming that you’ve acquired our service, we want to give you a comprehensive discussion that you must remember.

Here’s what you should know about Waster’s grease trap service:

We offer grease trap pump-out and cleaning services. The pricing is determined on a cent per litre basis. Pricing is shown exclusive of GST. In addition, the minimum charge is equivalent to a 1,000-litre pit. Pricing assumes grease trap is accessible by tanker within 15m of Pitt or pump out point and involves one personnel member to perform service. More complex services will require specific pricing.

Different areas have different laws. For example, in the Sydney metro, a Sydney water change transporter of form will be required and will be sent to you after signing up. In Sydney, our operations team scan your barcode each time a service is performed. If you operate in other areas, please keep a copy of our invoice as proof of services. This may be requested by the water authority.

Melbourne traps are quoted for a minimum of 4 (quarterly) services or 12 months, whichever occurs earlier. The Melbourne price is per individual service.

Grease trap cleaning is in line with the water authority schedule. Please note that Waster cannot set your schedule. Instead, the schedule will be set by your local water authority.


Waster’s grease trap service: how often should you have your grease traps cleaned?

How often should your grease trap be cleaned? Well, it depends. If you’ve read our blog on how often you should clean your grease trap for your cafe or restaurant, we discussed it there in detail.

According to smart alternative fuels, businesses should always remember the one-quarter rule. You might be thinking, “what is the one-quarter rule?” Basically, it means having your grease traps cleaned when you find them a quarter full. If you failed to do this, the trap becomes much less effective.

Delaying this will result in overflowing and blocking your grease trap. Along with the horrible stench, you will experience different problems that we’ve already enumerated above.

If you have any questions, then feel free to contact and ask us. We will be more than happy to help you here at Waster!
