FOG causes blockages in kitchen drainage systems, compromises hygiene, creates unpleasant odours, can impact upon employee health and safety, and ultimately can stop your commercial kitchen from operating.
FOG is also becoming a major issue for Britain’s sewer network, creating ‘fatbergs’ and causing blockages. As a result, every foodservice outlet in the country has a legal obligation to “manage effluent content” under the Water Industry Act (1991). Section 111 of The Water Industry Act (1991) gives water companies the power to bring a criminal proceeding against anyone who causes injury or inhibits the free flow of the sewer network. As FOG is a major cause of sewer blockages, under this Act the water companies have the power to prosecute for FOG contamination and also to recharge any costs incurred to clear blockages.
