Grease Trap and Interceptor Cleaning

We at CES Environmental Services specialise in Grease Trap and Interceptor Cleaning, Maintenance and Emptying. This is  in compliance with Local Authority Standards. We service a wide verity of Catering and food processing businesses throughout Ireland such as Hotels, Pubs, Restaurants, Schools, Canteens, Golf Courses and B&B’s.

All Commercial Food Business must install and maintain a grease trap system under current legalisation. Cleaning on a regular base is important to ensure the Grease Trap stays in good working order. Waste, fats, oils and greases from food establishments must not enter the waste water system. The reason behind this is they congeal and solidify into a hard mass causing blockages and disruptions to the efficient running of the sewers.

To prevent FOG’s entering the waste water system it is advised that the food industry use Grease Traps. And that they only use permitted waste collectors such as CES Environmental Services.  This guarantees that all FOG’s are removed before it enters the waste water system.

Grease Traps

In general they should be cleaned when 25% of the liquid level or the trap is grease or oil.  Grease settles at the top of the chamber and must be removed. Also solids settle at the bottom of the chamber and must also be removed.

Frequency of Emptying will depend on the nature of the activity producing the grease. If they are receiving grease from a utensil washing process will need much less cleaning than one used to receive grease from a full service restaurant.

We at CES Environmental Services provide a Waste Disposal Certificate on completion of every service outlining our Waste Permit Number (a copy our permit is available on request) and the facility where the grease will be disposed of on completion. CES Environmental Services will clean your kitchen trap / Interceptor thoroughly and efficiently. Our staff is fully trained in grease cleaning and disposal process. A Method Statement/Risk assessment is completed for each job.

We offer our customers a number of options that we tailor to meet their individual needs. We provide long term maintenance contracts or one off callouts which our trained staff always carry out using one of our Vacuum Tankers. (See our Fleet) On completion we provide our customers with a certificate of disposal for full traceability and we dispose of the Grease in an environmentally friendly manner at a licensed facility.

Emptying grease traps regularly ensures proper performance and operation and eliminates bad odours, line blockages and the promotion of bacteria in stagnant grease.

CES Environmental Services provide an out of hour’s service. We provide this service at no extra cost so no disturbance is caused to your business while carrying out our work.
