Fats, oil, grease - food service employee tips

Help employees take action against fats, oils and grease

Protect your business by teaching employees how to keep fat, oil and grease (FOG) out of the drain. Use these sheets and signs in your kitchen to remind them of what actions they can take to reduce the pressure on your grease trap or interceptor.

Tell employees - don't use chemicals in your traps

We prohibit the use of chemicals, enzymes and bacteria treatment to grease traps or interceptors in our Wastewater Bylaw. This is because they only dissolve fats, oils and grease long enough to enter our sewer system.

Once there, the fats, oil and grease re-coagulate, leading to clogged pipes and sewer backups for your business or your neighbours.
