Preferred Hauler Program

Key participants in JEA’s Fats, Oils and Greases (FOG) Program are the vendors that pump out and dispose of grease trap/interceptor contents. It is essential that waste haulers adequately maintain traps/interceptors and dispose of their contents in an acceptable manner.

The Preferred Hauler Program (PHP) is for grease trap pump out vendors that meet certain JEA established criteria. FOG generators in the JEA FOG Program are encouraged to use vendors in the PHP. When generators use a vendor in the PHP, the hauler will assume responsibility for submitting completed pump out reports. Also, grease trap inspections will be focused on the haulers performance in maintaining the trap and most discrepancies could be addressed to the hauler not the generator.
