How to properly dispose of FOG..fats, oils and grease

Sometimes Common Sense needs to be taught, this is something that all old timers knew and I guess you would just learn from growing up. You do not want to put grease and oil down your drain pipes, it will clog up and cost you a small fortune to clean. Thanks John for the reminder.

Here’s some useful information about how to propertly dispose of FOG..Fats, Oils and Grease and how they can cause some real nasty issues for today's homeowners and municipal wastewater collection and treatment systems.

FOG is not water soluble.  It separates from the water in sewer systems and clings to pipeClogged Sewer Line with FOG Fats Oils Grease walls.  This causes blockages and overflows, and affect your home’s plumbing and the city sewer system.

FOG is the leading cause of sewer backups and overflows.  A backup into a home is a serious health hazard and can cause thousands of dollars in damage.  Overflows that reach fresh water and river systems are harmful to fish and wildlife.

The easiest way to prevent FOG related sewer problems is to never dispose of grease, or greasy or fatty foods by putting it down the drain.

Using your garbage disposal or rinsing greasy pots with hot or soapy water is NOT the solution either.

The landfill is the very best place to dispose of FOG...not the sewer system.  Here are three easy to remember tips.

1. Scape leftover foods into the trash
2. Wipe greasy pots and pans with a paper towel before washing
3. For leftover cooking grease you should always...
   Cool It- Let the grease cool down
   Can it- Seal the grease in a can
   Chuck it- Into a trash can bound for a landfil

Never put FOG down the drain! Cool it, Can it and Chuck it.
