How Big Is a Grease Trap?

Some grease traps are large tanks buried under ground that hold thousands of gallons. Others contain less than 50 gallons and are located immediately beneath kitchen sinks.  Regardless of size, all grease traps require cleaning to remove the top layer of FOG and the bottom layer of sediment.  Large tanks are cleaned by commercial operations that must also show proper waste disposal per state requirements.  Small grease traps can be cleaned by the business owner but each cleaning must be logged and the log provided upon inspection.
