Keep your drains fat free this holiday season
Fats, oils and grease don’t just clog our arteries, they clog our sewers too. Keeping fat, oil and grease out of the drain is one of the best ways to avoid a sewer backup in your home. Many backups result from accumulated grease buildup along the walls of your sewer line. Over time, grease buildup will block water flow in your pipes.

Fats, oils and grease are found in many of the foods we eat every day. Foods such as butter, cooking oil, gravy, sauces, mayonnaise and salad dressing. Keep these items out of the drain or garbage disposal.

What can you do?
  1. Wipe. Remove grease from pots, pans and dishes with a scraper or paper towel and discard it in the trash.
  2. Pour. Discard cooled cooking oil or grease in a secure container. Use a metal can to collect the grease such as a coffee can, vegetable or soup can. Never pour it down the drain or garbage disposal.
  3. Trash. Put all cooled, discarded cooking oil or grease in the trash.
