What’s Required of My Food Service Establishment?
If you are constructing a new facility that serves food, such as a restaurant, sandwich shop, Salad/soup bar restaurant, commercial kitchen, catering facility, rest home cafeteria, (also known as food service establishments [FSEs]) or remodeling an existing FSE, there are requirements to be aware of before starting the project.
Does My FSE Require a Grease Trap, or a Grease Interceptor?
When FSEs cannot install a grease interceptor due to space limitations, utility line disruption or an inadequate slope of wastewater drainage, the FSE can request a variance from the building department or sewer agency. The building department or sewer agency will decide if factors exist that do not allow installation of a grease interceptor and may allow installation of another type of grease removal device, such as a grease trap. They must then sign the grease trap special agreement for a grease trap.
Once I’ve Collected My Grease, What Do I Do With It?
Use a West Virginia licensed grease waste hauler or recycler for servicing grease interceptors. CLICK HERE for a list of Beckley area licensed grease haulers and recyclers, refer to Selecting a Reputable Grease Haulers information sheet.
