Grease Traps or Grease Interceptors are passive devices required by municipalities to stop grease, fat, oil, wax or debris from entering the city's sanitary sewer system.
Typical building codes require all such new or rebuilt facilities to install a grease interceptor to pre-treat grease entering a sewer. Grease Interceptors must typically be sized for at least a 30 minute peak waste water flow detention time from all contributory sources.
If a grease interceptor is not properly installed or maintained it will not do its job! For your own assurance, DEP requires that only licensed plumbers install grease interceptors. These interceptors must be the proper size to work correctly. A licensed plumber can determine the correct size. Plumbers and business owners may also write to DEP’s Bureau of Wastewater Treatment, Pollution Prevention Section, for technical assistance.
