This presentation will focus on municipal fats, oils and grease programs, defining what the programs are and why they are put in place. It will explore how to create and enforce FOG programs; review methods of FOG management and new technological advances; and evaluate the relationship between waste haulers, local governments and restaurants as it pertains to FOG compliance. We will conduct a top-to-bottom analysis of a municipal FOG program including topics such as inspections, cleaning records, grease removal device sizing, types of grease removal devices, tracking sewer overflows and meeting Environmental Protection Agency regulations.
