ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

Question:

“What is a FOG Permit and do I need to obtain one?”

Answer:

A Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) permit is often required for businesses that utilize or discharge those products during the course of regular operations – restaurants and food trucks are good examples of businesses that might require FOG permits. Each locality may have specific rules related to the amount of discharge of fat, oil, and grease that requires a business to obtain a FOG permit.
