Grease Bin

Commonly referred to as a grease dumpster, corral bin and more, these containers are designed for storage and collection of used cooking oil from fryers and are placed outdoors and above ground.

Quick facts:

  • Standard bin has capacity of up to 2,250 lbs.  

  • Theft deterrent lid, lock and grate help prevent grease theft 

  • Automated storage solutions are a safe and efficient alternative to the outdoor bin 

  • A Direct Pump System connects your fryer to the automated tank; push a button on your fryer to transfer oil vs manually carrying it

Grease Trap

A grease trap is a container, generally placed underground and usually outdoors. It is required in most commercial kitchens to collect the fats, oils and greases ("FOG") that run through the sinks, dishwashers, disposals, floor or other drains during normal operations. Put simply, grease traps allow the FOG material to float where it can be removed, and the water to sink to the bottom of the trap where it flows out of the trap into the municipal water supply.

Quick facts: 

  • Grease traps are NOT intended for grease disposal 

  • The typical exterior grease trap is 1,000 gallons or larger 

  • Traps should be examined periodically for wear and damage 

  • A grease interceptor is commonly referred to as a grease trap; both terms reference the same thing

Is it okay to put grease down the drain?

Grease should never be poured down a drain, as it will solidify while traveling through the pipe and can cause clogging, backups and overflows. Such blockages can not only damage your plumbing system, but it can also cause issues with local city sewage systems and result in fines for the business owner. Grease traps are intended to capture residual grease and are not meant for the disposal of solid materials.
