All food servicing establishments such as restaurants (FSE) in San Francisco must acquire a state-approved inedible kitchen grease hauler to remove and dispose of waste from grease traps, grease interceptors, and oil fryers. With a substantial increase in sanitary sewer overflows (SSO's), city officials are closely monitoring FSE's best management practices when it comes to grease disposal.

Grease Trap & Interceptor Cleaning

Grease traps and interceptors are vital for all food servicing establishments to operate a commercial kitchen. Also known as (FOGS) Fats, Oils, Grease, and Solid waste separators, these devices are mandatory to run a San Francisco food service establishment or a commercial kitchen.

San Francisco's ordinance requires that businesses dealing with food and beverage to place a fats, oils, grease, and food solids control device, also known as a grease trap or grease interceptor. These devices will stop most grease and food waste from entering the sanitary sewer line that causes sewer lines to clog up and overflow.

Restaurants and all other businesses with commercial kitchens with either a grease trap or grease interceptor must adequately maintain these devices and ensure that their content does not exceed the 25% FOGS. Depending on the FOGS control unit's size and FOGS amount, entering the device will often determine how often the device should be pumped and cleaned.

Generally, small indoor traps need cleaning every month, and larger outdoor grease interceptors per quarter are as often as necessary to maintain the FOGS content level at 25% below. Failing to comply with regulations can lead to a citation and can cause plumbing issues.

Properly maintaining both grease traps and grease interceptors will prevent costly cleanup costs, plumbing issues, and citation from the city.
