While a little metal coffee can is a great grease container at home, it is too small for commercial needs. Instead, the big kitchens see a tremendous amount of grease go into their grease traps. The grease trap catches grease from dishes and food as they are rinsed off before being washed.

Because of the volume of food in professional kitchens, the grease is significant. The grease trap is emptied as a part of the normal operations of a working kitchen. The grease trap needs to be professionally cleaned out at least once a year, if not twice or more.

The key is to keep the grease out of the public water supply. Part of the impetus for this is to prevent fines from local authorities, such as the water treatment department.
