Grease trap fitting and maintenance across South East England

Two areas of existing UK law prohibit the disposal of fats, oils and grease into drains connected to the public sewer and hot food outlets and restaurants who flout the legislation can be fined thousands of pounds.

One business had to pay more than £30,000 in fines and costs because they did not have a grease trap fitted. It is estimated that more than 365,000 sewer blockages occur in the UK every year, 80% of which are caused by fats, oils and grease.

Section 111 of The UK Water Industry Act 1991 states that hot food outlets and restaurants are required to have a grease trap fitted and that they are also responsible for ensuring that it that works, in other words, is regularly serviced. Section 2.21 of the (Drainage and Waste Disposal) 2002 regulations requires that drainage serving kitchens in commercial hot food premises should be fitted with a grease separator.
