RE: Restaurant grease trap waste
grease trap waste doesn't really provide
the same potential for reprocessing as does the used grease - too much
sediment, detergents, etc....

|RE: Restaurant grease trap
Recycle/refine that grease. Use
it for bio-diesel. (I think there is a facility in MA.)
I have heard when you re-refine
the grease, the by-product glycerin, can be used in other applications
such as cosmetics.

NC DPPEA has done a lot with its
Fats Oil and Grease program (FOG)
Here is a web site with information
on its efforts to keep it out of sewer systems including case studies.

I did not find an answer to this
question on the archives and hope that one of you has some experience with
this issue. I posted it on a POTW listserve with no response, so
appreciate your input!
Restaurant grease trap waste is usually
pumped out of traps, solidified and sent to the landfill with a special
waste authorization. In some part of the state the grease is provided
to rendering plants that add it to animal feed. In rural areas there
is a concern that the material is land applied illegally.
Does anyone know of vendors or contacts
that are doing or using new or different equipment to pump and haul grease
from grease traps? Contacts that are utilizing a different disposal
method? What happens to this grease in your state?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
