As most homeowners know, the best way to handle household sewage is to have it carried away by the local municipality. This solution avoids dealing with the sewage or worrying about a septic system to maintain it. Unfortunately, is doesn’t separate the waste which could make things much more difficult for the neighborhood plants that clean the waste before reclaiming it. If the sewage system is a septic tank, then there may be other issues as well. A number of septic systems make use of a feature known as the grease trap. This smaller tank is designed to catch waste from the kitchen before it enters the primary septic tank. This makes cleaning the system a little easier, but it also requires separate grease trap cleaning in Middletown NJ.

Another use for grease traps is restaurants. These companies tend to use the grease trap as a collection container. This is possible since most commercial grease traps are rather large, roughly fifty gallons. The main reason for using this method is ease of use when collecting the waste oil and the ability to sell said oil to the biofuel industry. Oils such as vegetable oil and similar products are quickly turned into fuel for diesel engines since they don’t require a thin fuel like gasoline. Biofuel could end up saving this country quite a lot of money and reduce the need for foreign oil. Grease Trap Cleaning in Middletown NJ helps by collecting as much old oil as possible for cleaning and refining.

Grease trap cleaning is a common occurrence among restaurants. Busy places may need the trap cleaned at least every week. Failure to take care of this problem will result is no place to store the oil until pickup. Sadly, this is a serious problem. If the oil is allowed to sit for too long, it becomes rancid. Spoilage like this happens because part of the oil comes from nature. As the plants age, the oil begins to degrade and lose its ability to cook properly.
