Have Your Say: Metro Vancouver Grease Interceptor Bylaw Review

Metro Vancouver has released an invitation to foodservice sector stakeholders to join in small group meetings to discuss key areas of interest that will affect the proposed amendments to the Grease Interceptor Bylaw 268, 2012. Please see the invitation below for more information and instructions on how to register.

You are invited to join us for a meeting to talk about Metro Vancouver’s Food Sector Grease Interceptor Bylaw 268, 2012. The bylaw regulates the amount of fats, oils and grease that are released into the sewer system. Recent sewer pipe blockages and back-ups across the region tell us the current bylaw may not be working well enough to stop fats, oils and grease from entering the sewer system.

To improve the bylaw and reduce sewer blockages and back-ups, Metro Vancouver will be meeting with stakeholders and industry members to:

• Learn about the problems faced when trying to follow the bylaw (awareness, understanding, equipment, systems)
• Identify ways to make following the bylaw easier for individual stakeholder groups
• Collect input to improve the bylaw and develop education materials that will help to reduce the amount of fats, oils and grease entering the sewer

It is important that we understand your needs and interests as part of the review. Meetings will be held September – November 2018 to provide the opportunity for you to share your ideas and opinions.
