[HISTORY: Adopted by the Collier Township Municipal Authority 6-10-2008. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Grease traps and/or interceptors are installed to limit the amount of grease discharged into the public sewer system to levels not exceeding those permitted by ALCOSAN. Grease traps and/or interceptors are required for all businesses where food is prepared, cooked, sold, served or given with or without charge to customers or guests for their consumption.
As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- GREASE INTERCEPTOR
- Located outside the building and generally intercepts all flows from the kitchen and food processing areas.
- GREASE TRAP
- An interceptor located inside the building and intercepts flows from three-compartment sinks only.
The grease trap request letter is mailed annually by certified mail to all businesses that have a grease trap installed. The letter requests the name of the company which empties and disposes of the grease and, on the letterhead of the disposal company, a report containing the amount of grease removed and the frequency and dates of the cleaning schedule.
