Did you know?
Fats, oils and grease in the sanitary sewer will solidify and build up over time, eventually causing the sewer to overflow in the street, your yard, or even your home. It is important that everyone make every effort to keep these substances from going down the drain.
Keeping Drains Fat Free Is as Easy as 1-2-3!
1. Can the Grease: Put used cooking grease into an empty, heat-safe container, such as a soup can, and store it in the freezer. Once solidified, toss the can into the garbage.
2. Scape Your Plate: Wipe all pots, pans, dishes, and cooking utensils with a paper towel prior to washing to absorb the grease.
3. Catch the Scraps: Eliminate using the garbage disposal. Catch food scraps in the sink with a basket or strainer and toss into the trash or compost bin.
