THE DO'S & DON'TS

THE DO'S & DON'TS

The Do's:

  • Schedule regular grease cleanings.
  • Make sure that food prep and wash sinks are tied into a trap.
  • Ensure that your trap is properly sized.
  • Train your staff to remove as much waste and food solids as possible from plates and pots before washing.
  • Maintain a cleaning log for code compliance.

The Don'ts

  • Don't pour boiling water into a trap connected sink as it forces FOG's down the sewer pipe.
  • Don't connect garbage disposals to a trap.
  • Don't connect high temperature dishwashers to a trap.
  • Don't put chemicals, bleach, additives, or drain cleaners into a trap - they destroy naturally beneficial bacteria and risk harm to the environment
