FOG (Fats, Oils & Grease) - Food Service Establishments
The City of Norfolk has a program designed to partner with Food Service Establishments (FSEs) to help ensure Grease Control Devices (GCD) are in place and properly maintained.
FSEs are required to:
- Register all GCDs (traps and interceptors) with the City of Norfolk Dept. of Utilities Water Quality FOG Program Manager.
- Have at least one employee become certified/maintain Best Management Practice (BMP) Certification.
- Keep all GCD/Yellow Grease Container cleaning and disposal logs onsite for at least 3 years.
ALL FSEs ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE FSE GCD REGISTRATION FORM AT TIME OF OPENING AND WHEN/OR/IF ANY CHANGES OCCUR IN MENU, OWNERSHIP, RENOVATIONS OR AT ANYTIME UPON REQUEST OF THE FOG OFFICE.
The List of Approved High-Capacity Hydro-Mechanical Grease Interceptors can be found made by the following manufacturers (this is not a complete list - GCD manufacturers will be added as review of documentation is completed and found to meet the Hampton Roads Regional Technical Standards for Grease Control Devices):
