slippery when wet – avoiding trade waste management issues

You will always remember your first time. The stench, it’s unmistakeable. It’s truly unforgettable – an experience that certainly stays with you forever.

If you’ve never had the opportunity of experiencing the results of an accumulation of fats, oils and grease (FOG), the main contents of a grease arrestor – especially one that has been incorrectly installed or maintained – then thank your lucky stars.

Integration is not new to the commercial property sector and, like a fine wine, it has been maturing over time. It allows us to create better, more efficient and smarter buildings that are greener and more cost-effective to operate. Building…
