Generators of regulated waste are responsible for the waste from the time it is created until disposal is completed. Therefore, it is essential for generators to use qualified contractors to pump out waste properly, clean grease traps completely so they function properly, and transport the waste safely to the ultimate disposal facility.
All commercial transporters of grease disposal are required to register with the Environmental Protection Division (EPD) and obtain a FOG number to operate in Georgia. Athens-Clarke County requires commercial businesses to use a registered grease transporter to maintain and clean grease traps and systems.
The Southeastern FOG Alliance maintains a current list of state-registered transporters, who have been issued permits to operate in Georgia by the Environmental Protection Division. Visit their website and click on "State of Georgia in Compliance Date Base" to see the complete list.
