  • You may do damage to your own sewer lines

Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning

Being a responsible restaurateur means more than just taking care of guests and workers. The work of a restaurant directly impacts both the broader community and the natural environment. Just as the most thoughtful restaurants make careful decisions in sourcing food and partnering with suppliers, forward thinking restaurants work hard to also dispose of waster properly.

Regularly cleaning your restaurant grease trap is not just an act of self-interest (by saving you money), it is also a way to keep harmful substances for overloading sewers and the local environment.

Helping You to Capture & Eliminate FOG

FOG stands for "fats, oils, and grease". These substances are regulated by municipalities to prevent damage to the city sewer and wastewater treatment plants. The costs to the city due to FOG can be very severe. This is why there are regulations around letting grease and oils into sewer lines.

Our Portland grease trap specialists can help ensure that you stay compliant with regulations and keep your sewer system in top-notch condition.
