Grease Traps and Separators

Legal Requirements for Grease Traps

A trade effluent discharge to sewer licence (issued under Section 16 of the Local Government (Water Pollution) Act 1977, as amended) is a legal requirement if your business discharges trade effluent to a public sewer. These include restaurants, takeaways, pubs which serve cooked food, cafés, coffee shops, hotels, B&Bs, convenience stores and supermarkets, garage forecourt shops with delicatessen counters, food production kitchens etc. Restaurants, takeaways and establishments where food is prepared must have a Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) Trade Effluent licence. Along with this license there is a requirement for a properly sized grease trap to be installed in the premises, based on the amount of wastewater generated from this establishment. It will be regualry inspected by Irish Water and so must be cleaned, maintained and serviced on a regular basis with records to show this has been done.

 

Maintaining a Grease Trap

  • Use strainers in the sink
  • Wipe grease out of pans before washing
  • Wipe and scrape away waste into a suitable bin before washing
  • Don’t pour oils down the sink - pour them into a bottle and dispose of in an appropriate manner
  • Don’t leave taps running unnecessarily and repair any dripping taps
  • Use dedicated wash up sinks
  • Have your grease trap pumped out on a regular basis and cleaned
FAQs
What's a grease trap?

A grease trap essentially works by slowing down the flow of warm/hot greasy water and allowing it to cool. As the water cools, the grease and oil in the water separate out and the grease floats to the top of the trap. The cooler water which no longer contains the grease, continues to flow down the pipe to the sewer.

What are the requirements for grease traps?

By law, Irish Water now require that all food establishments obtain a license to discharge their wastewater into the public sewer.  To comply with this license, a grease trap must be installed, be regularly maintained to EU standards with records. It will be inspected regularly by Irish Water. In some counties, councils will specify that smaller domestic grease traps be installed in new one off houses or housing schemes. It is best practise to check with your local council as to what the requirements are in your area for a grease trap installation.

To find out more go to Irish Water

What grease trap do I need?

The size of grease trap you require is determined by the amount of wastewater being discharged from the premises. The grease trap will be sized according to I.S. EN 1825 Parts 1 & 2 but it is important that it is not oversized.

Do all restaurants have grease traps?

Yes by law all food service establishments are required by Irish Water to have a licensed, regularly maintained and inspected grease trap. 

How often should you clean a grease trap?

Best practise is to clean and service your grease trap every month to three months but it depends on the size and usage of your grease trap.

How do you maintain a grease trap?
  • Use strainers in the sink
  • Wipe grease out of pans before washing
  • Don’t pour oils down the sink - pour them into a bottle and dispose of in the general waste
  • Don’t leave taps running unnecessarily and repair any dripping taps
  • Have your grease trap pumped out on a regular basis and cleaned

For more information to Irish Water

What happens when a grease trap is full?

When a grease trap is full, excess grease solidifies at the top, forming a cap. With all that grease and dirt buildup it becomes hard for water to flow through the drain, leading to slow waste movement.

Can you clean your own grease trap?

No. Legally, the fats, oils & grease that is removed from your grease trap can only be disposed of using a licensed waste removal contractor.

How do I fix a smelly grease trap?

If your great trap is smelling, this may indicate that it needs to be pump and cleaned. If it has been more than a couple of months since your grease trap was last serviced this may be your first port of call. Another reason maybe improper ventilation on your grease trap / separator which is installed on larger units to allow air to circulate or it may be that some of the pipework or equipment going into the grease trap is broken. By regularly cleaning and inpecting your grease trap you should avoid the issue of unpleasant odours from your kitchen.

Are grease trap fumes toxic?

Grease traps can generate flammable and toxic gases over time. These gases can include methane (natural gas), hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and/or other gases depending on the greases, oils, and fats found in the grease traps. It is extremely important to the health of those that work near the grease trap that it is regularly cleaned and maintained.
