About Fats, Oils, & Grease

Any food service establishment suspected of causing problems to the collection system or treatment facilities will be inspected. In 2007/2008 Thames Water alone cleared over 60,500 blockages, of which 60% were as a result of FOG being released directly into the waste water system. This led to over 2500 visits to various sites, and a number of fines for non-compliance. FOG in the system can be traced back directly to the polluter. Depending on the amount of FOG entering the waste water system, and the condition and capacity of the grease management system, an establishment may be expected to increase its maintenance schedule, and/or improve its grease management equipment. In some cases prosecution may result in considerable fines, or even imprisonment, and the closure of a facility.
