In restaurants and other food preparation facilities a grease trap is installed to trap non-soluble fat and grease and prevent it from entering the sewerage system. Pits need to be emptied and cleaned on a regular basis and Real Waste Solutions can assist in this process.
Grease pit waste is collected in vacuum tankers and traps areas are washed, scraped and deodorised. They are then inspected to ensure they are functioning properly and any irregularities are reported. The waste is transported to our Collection Center, where it is filtered and screened before the sludge and water are separated. The greases and fats are then formed into bio-solids for disposal in landfill, whilst the water is treated to allow it to be safely disposed of in the sewerage system.
To prevent overflowing of grease traps it is advisable to segregate used cooking oil and store it for collection and recycling by Real Waste Solutions. We can provide your organization with suitable storage containers for this purpose. By segregating cooking oils from the grease trap system, maintenance issues can be reduced and recycling the oil can deliver significant carbon savings and reduce the risks of landfill and water pollution. Cooking oil can be recycled into bio-fuels for power generation and heating. Bio-fuels manufactured from recycled cooking oil burn cleanly, have a low carbon content and do not produce carbon monoxide.
We can arrange your grease trap waste cleaning and maintenance on a schedule to suit you and ensure compliance with local health and council regulations. The collection and disposal method employed by Real Waste Solutions comply with Council and State Environmental regulations.
