Food Service Information in English

Every commercial food service establishment produces waste products of fats, oils, and grease (FOG). As FOG goes through the sewer system it cools, comes out of solution and coats sewer pipes which in turn causes blockages that can lead to sewage spills, manhole overflows, or backups in homes and businesses.

The following information explains the Best Management Practices (BMPs) food service establishments must follow to properly maintain the grease trap or grease interceptor, and ensure FOG stays out of the pipes.
