Wastequip Continues Expansion into Organics Collection with the Introduction of the Grease Vault

Published on 05/18/11

Wastequip, the North American leader in waste handling and recycling equipment, has introduced the Grease Vault, a line of containers for collecting food grease. These steel containers, available in 100, 200, 300 and 360 gallon sizes, are designed for restaurants, schools, hospitals, grocery stores, hotels and other institutions that generate food grease.

State and federal regulations require that generators of food grease collect and dispose of grease responsibly. Additionally, as the demand for alternative fuels rises, so does the demand for recyclable grease providing institutions the opportunity to sell their used grease. Disposal regulations and growing demand for recyclable grease require containers that are easy to use and protect against theft. 

Wastequip grease containers are designed to meet customers’ needs with security, reduced contamination and easier clean out in mind. The Wastequip Grease Vault is available with three lid options – a reinforced plastic lid with bolted-in grate, a plastic loading lid within a welded steel lid and a plastic lid with a bi-fold steel lid underneath. Each of the three types of lids locks to deter theft. 

The unique feature of Wastequip’s Grease Vault containers is their design which allows them to accommodate both methods of emptying – vacuuming and dumping. Non-welded lids allow for vacuuming and a peg system enables automatic dumping, making these containers some of the most versatile on the market. 

Other features include lid overhang to prevent contamination, tapered design for nestability and lip overhang to prevent grease spillage. 

Options for the Grease Vault include bolt-in screens, heater coils for the 300 and 360 gallon containers and dollies with quick disconnect casters for easy servicing on the 100, 200 and 300 gallon containers.

“Continued growth in the bio-fuel market, along with more stringent regulations governing the collection and disposal of grease, will continue to drive the demand for grease and the need for secure grease containers to deter theft,” said Anne Brantley, containers product manager. “The introduction of grease containers is part of our continued effort to serve the growing demand for organics waste collection containers.”
