Clean, reliable grease-trap cleaning services at competitive prices
We remove all the materials, and separate and clean the water. Any other organic materials get processed into feedstocks that can be used to produce green energy.
How It Works
Grease traps must be cleaned regularly in order to work properly. Otherwise they can cause serious problems for your business and the environment.
1. Collect and clean
We’ll visit you on site and recommend a service schedule based on an analysis and review of the grease trap. A Redux service team member will empty and thoroughly clean the grease trap.
Your employees need to understand city bylaws, and the importance of regular cleaning and maintenance. We'll also make sure they're trained on how grease traps work and operations best practices to minimize issues.
Every service call is documented on site and entered into our system. Reports can be easily provided to show regulatory compliance to city inspectors. And you can access your reports anytime through our online portal.
We take the collected material to our closest facility. The FOG (fat, oil, grease) and food solids are separated from the water, which is then treated. Finally, the FOG and solids get recycled and used as feedstocks for green-energy production.

Every city has a minimum service frequency requirement. Redux keeps up to date on bylaws and regulations. We'll help make sure you meet the requirements for your munipality.
There are a number of reasons why a grease trap might back up:
- The lid isn't fastened properly.
- The plumbing line downstream is blocked or partially blocked, causing the wastewater to flow slower than the material entering the grease trap.
- The outflow chamber of the grease trap is blocked or partially blocked, restricting the flow of waste out of the grease trap.
- The grease trap is full of FOG and solids, which causes the outlet and drain to become blocked.
Please let us know if you're having problems, and one of our trained service professionals can assess the issue.
Fat, oil, grease (FOG), and solids accumulate continuously, and the trap will reach capacity to handle the wastewater. Regular service of your grease trap means you're meeting city bylaws and keeping your FOG and solids count below the 25% threshold. Plus, it prevents expensive drain blockages, which can also disrupt your business operations. Regular cleaning also keeps the trap odours from escaping.
It takes anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour and depends on the size and the length of time between services.
