Greenville Grease Trap Policy
Food Service Establishments (FSE’s) in Greenville County are required to have a grease trap or interceptor to catch potential FOG buildup and protect Greenville from harmful pollutants and sewage overflows.
Under the sink grease traps must be cleaned on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly bases as determined by the commercial pretreatment inspector.
In-ground grease interceptors must be maintained on a minimum quarterly basis by an approved grease hauler.
Be sure to partner with an experienced and trustworthy grease hauler as your grease interceptor must be cleaned out thoroughly.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a grease trap?
A grease trap is a receptacle into which wastewater containing FOG flows through before entering a drainage system. The receptacle is designed to intercept or “trap” the FOG while allowing clear water to escape.
When should I clean my grease trap?
A good rule of thumb for any cleaning schedule is every one to three months. However, in order to determine if it should be one or three, you will need to follow the 1/4th rule. This rule states that once 1/4th of your grease trap has been filled with fats, oils, grease, and solids (FOGS) it is time for a pump out.
