HALLOWEEN, FATBERGS AND GREASE TRAPS

Hello Blog Readers,

Halloween is fast approaching and scary movies and parties are being planned!

If you planning a party and cooking food remember to follow the best kitchen practices to reduce FOG waste in the kitchen.  To avoid a scary fatberg appearing in your neighborhood it is important to remove excess grease from plates before washing, store used fat in a jar or container for recycling and never pour fats and oils down the drain.  The sewage system was not designed to handle FOG waste.  Thames Water service in the UK spends on average one million pounds per month clearing fatbergs and blockages from the sewers.

There have been many articles written regarding the importance of grease traps and good kitchen practices to reduce the problem.  Below is a list of the weird and scary things that have been found in the sewers by water companies:

  • Bike
  • False teeth
  • An Alligator
  • Half a car
  • Cow
  • Severed finger
  • Sofa
  • Moped
  • Jeans
  • Toys
  • Weapons

Restaurants that use fats, oil and grease (FOG) when cooking should install a grease trap or grease removal device.  A grease trap is designed to trap grease and allow clean water to enter the sewer system.  Larger businesses and restaurants may be required to install and maintain a grease trap if a FOG programme is in operation.

Grease Guardian has a range of kitchen solutions to help reduce FOG waste in the kitchen.  The grease traps can be installed under sinks, pot wash sinks, combi ovens and Chinese cookers.  The Grease Guardian X Range automatically separates and removes FOG waste and they are easy to install and maintain.
