What are Grease Traps?

Whether you run a high end Italian bistro or a classic burger joint, your restaurant generates its fair share of grease. But that grease has to go somewhere. When your kitchen employees send wastewater down the drain, the job of a grease trap is to capture those fats and oils so they don’t start clogging up your sewer lines. In the same way that fats can cause a heart attack in our own arteries, they can cause a “heart attack” in the pipes of your kitchen—with similarly disastrous results!
