Grease Trap Cleaning Frequency by Municipality



How often should I pump my grease trap?

The answer ranges from every 14 days to every 180 days. The average restaurant cleans their grease trap between every 60 and every 90 days for a large outdoor grease trap. Indoor grease traps should really be pumped between every 30-60 days. Check out our list of NC municipalities that all have their own distinct requirements. You should pump at least as frequently as they require and perhaps more frequently based on the volume of your business. Liquid rising up out of your grease trap or backing into your kitchen through your drains is a good sign that you need to increase your pumping frequency.
