Why you should consider a Grease Guardian in your commercial kitchen

Aaron Moynes

Business owners in the hospitality industry will understand how demanding and difficult it is to design and maintain a busy commercial kitchen. It’s not surprising that during the design stage, the focus is usually on how best to present and market the business to attract clientele. Fitting out the kitchen then becomes a running battle to minimise costs, and still keep hold of that original design without spoiling anyone’s dreams. ..

Tasmania Trade Waste Issues

Aaron Moynes

When you think of Tasmania you think of the picturesque Cradle Mountain, the historical ruins of Port Arthur, and the spectacular Bay of Fires. Tasmania is renowned for having one of the most pristine and beautiful environments in the world, and their 1.5 million ha Wilderness World Heritage Area is the envy of Australia. Although only a small population of around 500,000 people, increased tourism and other factors have contributed to the gradual deterioration of the Tasmanian wastewater treatment plants which required urgent support.

TasWater was formed in 2013 to achieve important environmental, social and economic outcomes in response to wastewater problems, through the uniting of the three Tasmanian water and sewerage corporations; Ben Lomond Water, Cradle Mountain Water, Southern Water and their service arm, Onstream. TasWater aim to make a positive difference to Tasmania, and play a part in protecting Tasmania’s rugged mountains and shimmering water.

Eco Guardians are actively working with Australian Water Authorities, like Taswater, to provide sustainable solutions that help commercial businesses meet their trade waste criteria, and help protect the natural environment.

In vast and isolated places like Tasmania, it is often near impossible to install and maintain grease traps at every commercial kitchen. One solution to this problem involves installing a Grease Guardian. This technology enables trade waste customers, especially small regional operators, to service and monitor their own trade waste without facing the huge costs of excavating, installing and maintaining a large grease trap.

The Grease Guardian is the best available technology as an alternative to a standard grease trap, which has been stringently tested both officially and through years of field usage. There are thousands of units in operation across Australia, and Eco Guardians offer a maintenance package for all customers, no matter of location, ensuring the customer is trained and setup with a regular service package.

“Grease management is not exclusively about equipment, but also implementing best kitchen practices and grease waste awareness, and our proactive approach will work better than any passive approach,” says Grease Guardian Manufacturer Eamon Fitzpatrick.

“Eco Guardians always follow up with their customer, and ensure all Grease Guardians installed are looked after for years to come.”
