Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG)
- Grease is a common cause of blockages in private systems and in municipal sewer lines. Grease blockages result in plugged sinks, basement backups and sanitary sewer overflows that are harmful to the environment.
- Don’t dump grease into an indoor or outdoor drain.
- Either recycle your FOG or place in a container such as a coffee can, seal it and place it in your trash.
