Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) Program

(Food Establishments)

In an effort to prevent the introduction of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) into the County's sanitary sewer system and prevent sewer blockages  that can result in sewage spills, the City has developed a FOG program.  The FOG program is intended to increase the awareness of operators of local food service establishments, and their employees, about measures that they can take to limit or prevent the introduction of fats, oils and grease into the drain and the sanitary sewer system.

Last year, effective September 1, 2009, the City of Glendora established a FOG inspection program.  This program requires that the City of Glendora annually inspect all food establishments to determine that Best Management Practices (BMP's) are followed for FOG control.  In the past the County of Los Angeles had administered the annual inspections

Beginning November 5, 2010 the City of Glendora Building Inspectors will be visiting all food establishments to perform the inspections based on the City's F)G Restaurant Inspection Checklist.  The fee for this annual inspection is $180.00 and will be billed to you after the inspection has been completed. 

Prior to the inspection, please insure that your business meets all of the Best Management Practices listed on the checklist so that a re-inspection is not requried.  If a re-inspection is necessary, an additional $100.00 re-inspection fee will be billed per the City of Glendora Resolution No. 09-44.

If you should have any questions regarding this program, please contact the Building Division at (626) 914-8222 or email Judi Hardy at
