I don't really understand this. Were there NO grease trap requirements before now? That seems really dumb, especially for a place that deep fries everything. I thought there were just additional businesses affected by the new ordinance, ie: sandwich shops. I hope someone can explain this for me. And whoever suggested the recycling of grease in lieu of traps has my support on that one. Plenty of uses for used oil.
FWGirl, Hi girl, again. There are traps that were allowed for small restaurants, not very expensive by the way (they go by gallons of water), these “Frachises” have the money to install the real big ones but a small business owner can not afford a $20,000 plus trap. Well, the city (Manager) wants every restaurant to install the big ones, I think 4,000 or 40,000 gallons I think… Call the City Inspector for better info. The fact is that is not necessary to do that, the oil could be recycled by the city and bring a profit but that is not an option here, you know, everyone has to comply, what is going to happen is that many small restaurant owners will go out of business. This administration will do anything for big business but has a hard time supporting the small business owners. You can do more research on this topic.
