The Importance of Regular Grease Interceptor Maintenance
Your grease interceptor or grease trap works by filtering fats, oils, and grease (FOG) out of the wastewater your business creates. Without regular cleaning and maintenance, FOG can build up and create unpleasant odors that can get into your dining areas, cause drain backups and clogs, and can even damage public infrastructure or lead to environmental harm. Additionally, cities, states, and localities have codes and regulations regarding proper waste oil disposal that you must be mindful of to avoid fees, fines, or even being shut down.
The Oregon Oils Advantage
Whether you want to be prepared for a health inspection or you need to schedule regular maintenance for the long term, Oregon Oils is the premier waste oil cleaning and recycling company in the Portland area. Our skilled technicians perform a deep cleaning of your grease interceptor to ensure there is no build-up or residue left behind. Then we inspect and evaluate the condition of the grease interceptor and analyze your FOG levels, forwarding the report to your local municipality so you maintain your compliance. We’ll save the record too, in case it is needed in the future. Oregon Oils is recognized by the City of Portland under its Preferred Pumper Program, which certifies that we have a deep understanding of the intricacies of the regulations surrounding grease trap and grease interceptor cleaning and maintenance. Plus, we offer a waste oil recycling program that will compensate you for your used oil and is good for the environment, too.
From Waste Oil to Biofuel
Oregon Oils will buy your used cooking oil and waste oils to create biodiesel fuel. Instead of having to pay to dispose of environmentally hazardous used cooking oil, when you use our service, we take the oil and filter and process it so it can be used as fuel for diesel engines. Not only does this prevent improper disposal of the waste product; it reduces waste and cost and is good for the environment, the economy, and your community. Using biodiesel fuel reduces overall emissions, saves costs, and reduces our reliance on fossil fuels. We’re proud to offer this oil recycling service for these reasons, but also because it can help to save you money and keep your grease interceptor equipment working properly.
