Grease trap cleaning in seasonal restaurants

Sussex County Engineering, in conjunction with Environmental Services, encourages all seasonal restaurants to clean their grease traps before opening for the season.

Our studies have determined that a significant amount of Sussex County's sewer blockages from grease occur when seasonal restaurants open for the upcoming season without prior cleaning of their grease traps/interceptors.

For more information, see Tips on How to Avoid Sewer Clogs from Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG). If you have questions, please contact us at (302) 362-9889.
