Oils are based on petroleum or related hydrocarbons, they have certain inherent characteristics of which the user should be aware. There are, of course, no unusual hazards associated with most lubricating oils and greases, provided reasonable care is taken with their storage, handling and usage.

The Oil and Grease Control Ordinance is the result of a mandate from the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources that each municipality install a program of oil and grease control to aid in the prevention of sanitary sewer blockages and overflows that adversely impact the environment. Previous surveys and inspections of food service facilities suggest that the majority are already compliant with the main focal points of this ordinance. Inspections of facilities for compliance with the ordinance will be an on-going process.
