Every year millions of rands are spent unblocking pipes caused by a build–up of fat, oil and grease (FOGs) illegally entering our drainage systems, which puts tremendous stress on the City’s waste water systems, resulting in massive damage to our environment. The sewer reticulation system is only geared to accept toilet waste (urine, excrement and toilet paper) and sink/ basin/ bath waste (water, washing liquid and soap); whilst the storm water reticulation system is only geared to accept rainwater.Anything else has a negative impact on the system and ultimately causes blockages. The South African Government is clamping down on those who contravene the Wastewater By-Law. Fat Traps offers a professional, socially responsible and price effective solution as a leader in liquid waste management.

What is a Fat/Grease Trap?

  • A Fat Trap is a container which captures all waste water where food is prepared. The trap separates the Fat, Oil and Grease from the waste water ensuring that only the clear water then enters the sewer system. A Fat / Grease Trap varies from a capacity of 45 litres to 100 000 litres and more.
