Recycling and Disposal of Grease Management Solutions
Why Recycle Responsibly?
In a world where increasing emphasis is placed on environmentally friendly and responsible practices it's vital that everyone does their part. When equipment reaches the end of its useful life, it's imperative to understand and adhere to acceptable, and legal, methods of disposal.
Grease management solutions consist of numerous metals and mechanical components which, unless disposed of correctly, can have a damaging and lasting effect on the environment. All grease traps etc. must be emptied, stored and disposed of responsibly and within legislative guidelines by a regulated body. While manufacturers, distributors and producers must demonstrate a responsible attitude it is also vital that customers endeavour to see that safe recycling and disposal is carried out.
The majority of manufacturers will offer a recycling and disposal service for the equipment itself. Where manufacturer recycling services aren't available we recommend contacting our team, your local authority or a reputable company listed in your area. For safe disposal of FOG's please get in touch with our team for more details or contact your local authority.
Ordered a new piece of equipment and arranged for recycling and disposal through the same manufacturer? It is important to bear in mind that not all recycling services will be carried out on the same day as delivery. Equipment remains your responsibility, that includes with regards to environmental aspects, so make sure you have suitable storage for old units until they can can be collected.
All units scheduled on a recycle service must be ready to collect outside of the premises on the day of collection.
The Cost of Recycling
Due to the many variables involved when quoting a price for recycling and disposal services, it is difficult to give a standardised fixed cost. Being dependent on the type of equipment, dimensions, weight and location of the product, should you require a service, prices are generally available on a POA basis. Contact us for more details.
