Improper disposal of FOG from cooking creates problems for both business owners and City of Pleasanton maintenance crews if the sewer system plugs.
The City of Pleasanton wants to work with businesses to help create a clean, environmentally friendly atmosphere that will maintain a positive image and profitable experience.
Food service establishments must install either a grease inceptor or trap.
- Grease interceptors shall be inspected and maintained at least monthly.
- Inspection/maintenance records shall be kept for at least two years and submitted to the City by 6/30 and 12/31 of each year.
- Fats, oil and grease are present in many items. Cooking oils, condiments made with oils, meat juices and fat are examples.
- Do not pour FOGS down the drain. Doing so will clog sewer pipes.
- Place these items in a disposable container and dispose of it in the garbage.
- Place all food scraps in the green waste recycling cart where they will be processed into rich compost material for gardening, landscaping and farming.
