Bayfield: The town approves more comprehensive grease trap standards in March

From the Pine River Times (Carole McWilliams):

The town board approved updates to the town’s grease trap ordinance in March, to require more business accountability for grease trap and interceptor maintenance. It lists penalties but states intention to seek voluntary compliance first…

Saba told the Times that the grease issue is not just restaurants. It’s residential customers too. “We have a pretty good idea of a resident dumping motor oil” into the system, he said. He urges residential customers not to put grease down the drain.

More wastewater coverage here and here.

  1. As well it should be. Waste Vegetable Oil is an assett that can be recycled, there is no reason to pollute streams with the runoff of grease traps.
