New Ala. Law Requires Locked Grease Traps – LockDown is a Solution

The Sadie Grace Andrews Act took effect June 1 across Alabama. The new law requires all commercial establishments with publicly-accessible grease traps to secure them by Dec. 1, 2018. The law was passed in response to the tragic death of a 3-year-old girl after she fell through the plastic cover of a grease trap outside an ice cream shop.

The LockDown device provides a simple and effective solution for businesses to comply with the law. The penalty is $100 a day for every day a grease trap is not secured. Call us today to talk about how the LockDown or LockDown XP can secure your grease trap or manhole.
