When should these units be emptied?

As time passes these units fill with oils, greases, and solids. Once the unit exceeds 20% of its removal capacity (or every 90 days) with the oil, grease, and solids, it is time for it to be pumped out by a professional hauler. Pumping out the units prevents the oil, grease, and solids from entering the collections system. Your hauler should then dispose of this waste material at an approved licensed facility.
