Food Grade Services

Our food grade services consist of emptying commercial grease traps and triple interceptor cleaning of all sizes.

When grease solidifies in sewer pipes and blocks them the consequential spills can cause damage and foul odours. A well-maintained grease trap will ensure overflows and blockages do not occur.

We work together with local Water Boards such as South East Water, City West Water and Yarra Valley Water to ensure your grease traps are emptied and cleaned within the regulated time frame. If required we can schedule grease traps for you to ensure they are cleaned on time as required by your local water board.

Who needs a grease trap and why it needs to be cleaned?

The purpose of having a grease trap is to prevent waste material from entering the public sewer. It is usually installed in between the waste pipes and sewer lines in commercial kitchens which allows the grease trap to accumulate and collect the oil and grease.

If not cleaned promptly, all the bacteria, organic waste, fat, oil and grease will accumulate and start to clog both the waste pipes and underground drainage systems.

The prices above are only an indication for common size grease traps and can be used as a general guide. For the exact prices, please contact CSA Operations.

How often should grease traps be pumped out?

The frequency is usually set by your local water authority. It depends on different factors such as the size of your grease trap, size of your business and type of food you serve. Below We have provided you with an indication which can be used as a general guide only:

Commonly, businesses that are located in Victoria should clean their grease traps at least once every 3 months. The busier your commercial kitchen, cafe or restaurant is, the more frequent cleaning is required.

If you refuse to install or maintain your grease trap, you will be fined by the local council, due to the damage grease does to public sewers.
