Many restaurant owners find themselves trying to rub two pennies together to make a nickel when it comes to equipment needs, so many of the extras tend to get left out. What many don’t realize is that these technologies and extra investments have been made to cut down on total costs over time.
Grease disposal can be a hassle for many small business owners, but some

ever reaches your wastewater disposal unit and further sewer lines.
Knowing the ins and outs of grease traps can help you make an informed
decision on which trap is right for your restaurant and can help reduce
your restaurant’s impact on the local wastewater systems!
