Waste Options can also help with the disposal of your grease trap!

There are some key points to know before you book! Before you book your grease trap service- it is good to understand the following concepts:

Restaurant grease trap: when you operate a business serving food such as a cafe, takeaway shop or restaurant you will likely be required to have a regulated grease trap on site.

Required schedule: the schedule you need to follow for grease trap cleaning will be set up and monitored by your local water authority. They will categorise your business based on business type, size of trap (in litres) to work out the required schedule. You will then be required to keep a record of the services performed. In Sydney- a barcode is scanned and the service performance is then recorded on the system automatically.

Barcode or trade waste agreement: In Sydney – each grease trap will have a barcode- this will be a white sticker/plaque attached to a wall or service near the trap. When you book a service it is best to have these details on hand.

Pricing: pricing per service is usually calculated on e per litre basis- i.e it will be a cost per litre X the number of litres in the trap. Many providers may have a minimum litre charge- i.e such as 1000 litres or higher.

Waste Options can also help with your disposal of grease traps as well as waste and recycle.

Staff in your office can help by separating waste and recyclables, hence helping to increase recycling percentages.

How you can boost recycling through office rubbish 

By putting in place a simple waste management plan, you can pretty easily achieve very high recycling rates for your business- this can help keep your staff engaged and also lead to a better work atmosphere.

We list from top to bottom – the easiest and cheapest recycling options to put in place to reduce any waste ending up in landfill.

Cardboard and Paper recycling- most offices produce lots of paper and some cardboard. The cheapest way (and most environmentally friendly way to get rid of it is to have cardboard bin collection. If some of your paperwork is confidential – you can organize a shredding bin.

Confidential shredding bin- ensures your private documents (or customer private details) are not simply thrown into the garbage for all eyes to see. The bin is kept and collected by security cleared driver from inside your office space. Waste Options can help with this too. Just another option for our clients, not to mention peace of mind.

Commingled recycling- if your office has items like drink cans, plastic bottle etc a commingle recycling bin (a yellow mixed recycling bin) could be a good move and will let you reduce any general waste going to landfill.

Organic food waste- if you produce reasonable amounts of food waste, there may be an organic food waste collection service in your area. Alternatively, if you have a garden you could think about having a composter.

Recycling boxes- it is good to know also that pretty much anything can be recycled using TerraCycle recycling boxes such as cigarettes, coffee pods, rubber gloves or hairnets. Pretty much anything.
