Fats, Oils and Grease

Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) can cause damage to your home and our environment. Help keep the pipes flowing by making sure FOG does not go down the kitchen drain. Keeping FOG out prevents clogs and sewer backups in your home. 

FOG includes common things like: butter, mayonnaise, cake frostings, cheeses, cooking oil, frying grease, food scraps, and peanut butter.

Make sure these things end up in the household trash by wiping down surfaces before washing. No amount of soap and hot water will make clogs go away. The garbage disposal makes it worse. They just end up sticking to the pipes over time then one day ....
