South East Water’s Trade Waste Team and Community Grants Program has provided $8,600 in funding to Olive’s Lane, a local social enterprise cafe, to install a grease trap and support its ongoing trade waste management. 

South East Water Manager Trade Waste Support Services, Kate Tanner, said it was important for businesses to understand how their trade waste should be managed.

“Food and oil interceptors, or ‘grease traps’ are important for food businesses like Olive’s Lane because food, fat, oil and grease can solidify and create blockages in internal waste pipes and in our sewer network,” Ms Tanner said.

“We’re proud to have supported Olive’s Lane through the trade waste process to not only help them continue their valuable workplace training for young people but also protect our assets and environment at the same time.”

Located in St Kilda Police and Citizens Youth Club (PCYC), Olive’s Lane aims to empower young people experiencing disadvantage through workplace training, with proceeds helping to fund youth outreach programs.

St Kilda PCYC can now extend its hospitality training for young people in the local community, thanks to assistance from South East Water’s Trade Waste Team.

St Kilda PCYC Olive’s Lane Manager, Donny Pelsoczy, wanted to build upon its barista skill offering to young people, extending it to include food-handling and service.

“By expanding our food-service training, we discovered we needed to install a ‘grease trap’ to manage our food waste. The Trade Waste team at South East Water helped us understand the requirements for a grease trap and ongoing trade waste management,” Mr Pelsoczy said.
