In South Florida,
particularly in Miami Dade County, the Fats, Oil,
and Grease department, or simply known as FOG is one
of the strictest county reviews in the country.
Any commercial facility that handles, prepares or
processes food (hot or cold), discharges or has the
potential to discharge Fats, Oil, and Grease to the
public sanitary sewer system requires a FOG
Discharge Control operating permit.
Examples of facilities that require a FOG operating
permit include Assisted Living, Bakeries, Banquet
Halls, Cafeterias, Catering, Coffee Shops,
Convenient Stores, Daycares, Manufacturing, Meat
Markets, Restaurants, and Supermarkets. These
facilities produce Fats, Oil, and Grease from food
preparation, food service and kitchen clean-up. If
FOG is not disposed of properly it ends up getting
rinsed and poured down the drain, which causes
environmental problems such as blocking wastewater
flow and clogging sewer pipes.
As part of the FOG Operating permit each facility
will be required to install and maintain a properly
sized grease trap interceptor with proper
maintenance, training of employees, and disposal
from a certified liquid waste hauler.
FOG Discharge Control operating permits are renewed
annually and are non-transferable. That means each
time there is a sale, relocation, or legal transfer
of an existing business the applicant must go
through a FOG review of the existing system in
place. DERM (Department of Environmental Resource
Management) requires all existing grease traps meet
their latest requirements and be brought up to their
99% efficiency standards for new grease discharge
