New Orleans Pumper Installs Greasezilla for Efficient, Eco-friendly Grease Trap Waste Disposal
Safeway Used Oil and Grease is a premier provider of grease trap cleaning services in New Orleans. The family-owned business started off as a motor oil collection and recycling company and has since partnered with commercial, industrial, and institutional clients.
Cooking oil and grease not disposed of properly ends up going down the drain, where it cools and solidifies. When cooking oils and batters harden in plumbing systems, it accumulates on the walls of pipes, thus causing large obstruction and damage to sewer water collection systems and treatment facilities. For that reason, commercial kitchens are required to have a grease trap to catch harmful substances.
Pumpers, like Safeway Used Oil and Grease, that haul commercial grease trap waste are experiencing a dire shortage of FOG processing solutions. Receiving stations are currently limiting disposal options and raising tipping fees, leaving pumpers waiting in long lines or driving long distances to dump their loads. Not only is this hazardous for the foodservice facility, but it also creates frustrations for foodservice owners.
Carlo Cacioppo, Safeway Used Oil and Grease, said, "I initially figured that a system like Greasezilla would be too expensive for my family business. However, as business grew, we ran into disposal problems. If we could afford to pay somebody else for disposal, we figured we could afford to pay for a Greasezilla system that would help us process FOG, get rid of it and even use it."
Now, Safeway Used Oil and Grease will be able to process the grease trap waste safely and quickly, and even guarantee that it will have further purpose as an advanced biofuel or as feedstock for biodiesel conversion technologies. In addition to providing a green disposal solution, Greasezilla is a highly profitable process that generates new tipping revenue fees and realizes a payback of less than two years on its equipment.
Cacioppo continued, "The Greasezilla system is going to benefit myself and others by making the waste disposal a whole lot faster. Moving forward, I plan on opening this operation up to other haulers in the area and invite them to dispose of their grease trap waste using our Greasezilla system. The goal is to work together with other people in our industry to provide faster and safer maintenance throughout New Orleans."
