The City of Titusville manages a brown grease interceptor permit program that requires all food service industry and other Fats Oil and Grease (FOG) dischargers to maintain grease interceptors and submit written proof of regular pump-outs of grease accumulations by licensed contractors.
The pumped grease is typically trucked to recycling facilities including rendering plants and fuel energy cogeneration plants. The City grease interceptor permit program includes over 160 permits and diverts 60,000 gallons of brown grease to recycling facilities. The Pretreatment Program employees two staff members, both of whom hold FIPA FOG Management Certifications and receive annual continuing education training. Contact the Industrial Pretreatment Program staff directly for any questions, forms or permit applications related to grease interceptors.
Yellow grease recycling is a profitable standard service of the restaurant supply industry and it successfully occurs in Titusville without the need for local government oversight. Ask your restaurant supplier about recycling yellow grease.
