Wastequip Grease Vault lid

Anti-Theft Grease Container Lids

Wastequip introduced the Grease Vault lid to discourage grease theft, a growing problem as the value of used cooking oil has risen. The lid’s plates interlock, leaving no edges to pry open. The new package also includes a shielded lock and a heavy-duty grate. Available in middle-dump or end-dump configurations, with drop-in box or flat grates, the Grease Vault lid and grate system is standard on Wastequip grease containers, and also can be retrofitted on most existing grease containers. Units are available in sizes ranging from 100 to 360 gallons.
