Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG)

  1. For your House
  2. For your Business

Just as fat accumulates and causes blockages in human  arteries, oil and grease solidifies and accumulates in household pipes, restricting the flow of wastewater and causing sewer  backups and overflows. Fats, oils, and grease (FOG)  separates from other liquids as it goes down your drain. The FOG  cools and sticks to household pipes and sewer pipes.

There are ways for our customers to help this problem. Here are a few:

  • Always keep in mind that just because your grease waste is leaving your sink with no problem, that it won't start creating a problem down the road for you, your neighbor and your community.
  • Do not pour grease down your sink.
  • Do not flush grease down your toilet.
  • Do not use your garbage disposal as a trashcan.
  • Do not pour food down your drain.
  • Wipe clean your dishes.
