Grease Interceptors

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. In 2018, the City grease interceptor permit program included 122 permits and diverted 73,080 gallons of brown grease to recycling facilities. 

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.
