Grease Trap

Keeping grease and cooking oil out of sewer systems benefits both residents and
municipalities by reducing the costs associated with oil and grease build-up in the
systems. Cooking oil sticks to sewer pipes, causing clogs and breaks that are costly for
homeowners and municipalities to fix. Oils and grease also interfere with processes at
wastewater treatment facilities.

The following businesses offer grease trap and fryer oil collection services. Please call for
further details concerning time of operation and permissible materials.
