What is a Grease Trap?
A grease trap is a holding tank designed to stop grease and solids from entering wastewater disposal systems, by separating the fats and grease from water.
Fats, oils, and grease accumulate over time, meaning your grease trap will require regular servicing and maintenance.
Any business that cooks or serves hot food is required, by the Water Corporation to have a grease trap, all wastewater from food preparation areas, floor wastes, kitchen sinks, and dishwashers are legally required in WA to flow directly into the grease trap.
