I have worked in restaurants part time my whole life. From short order cook, dishwasher and manager. I have always had an interest in the restaurant business. In the last year I had an opportunity to work for a company that sells a new grease trap or grease recovery device. I have found that working around the traditional grease trap has been a smelly and disgusting experience. I am trying to educate others on the traditional grease trap. In my grease trap education I have learned that grease traps only collect 85% of the fat,oil and grease (FOG) that enter the trap. If a grease trap is not serviced regularly than 50 to 100% of the grease going down the drain enters the sewer systems. The tax money involved to clean the grease clogs is overwhelming. The oxygen in the water is being depleted by the food solids and grease. Aquatic life is being depleted due to this lack of oxyygen (BOD) The smell alone of a traditional grease trap is not fair or good for the kitchen staff. Grease is terrible for the environment. What I need from people in this forum is pictures of grease traps. I am looking to make a gallery of these disgusting products. I believe that this would open up alot of peoples eyes. (Restaurant owners, municipal bodies) Please send all photos to [email protected] I would really appreciate all contributions. I will not ever submit restaurant name, only city and country.
