  • Scrape food waste from all dishes, pots, pans, cookware, and equipment to the garbage before pre-wash.
  • Set up a regular cleaning schedule for your interceptor/grease trap with your maintenance vendor.
  • Keep all maintenance/service records or copies of records at facility for a minimum of three years.
  • Have a company representative inspect the cleaning of the interceptor/grease trap to ensure it was completed properly.
  • Train all employees on proper food and grease waste handling techniques.
  • Do not allow the waste hauler to decant wastewater from the truck back into the device or into your sanitary sewer connection.
  • Do not dispose of grease wastes into the sewer drain.
  • Do not clean equipment outside where grease and food wastes will flow into storm drains or dry wells.
  • Do not wait until your grease removal device is overflowing with waste to get it cleaned.
  • Do not dump old chemicals (e.g. pesticides, herbicides) into the drain.
  • Do not use a drain opening chemical to open a clogged drain (call a professional plumber to evaluate the situation).
