[ARCHIVED] Fight Holiday F.O.G. (Fats, Oils, and Grease)

Turkey baking in the oven

The Wastewater Department wants to remind residents gathering this holiday season to trash their FOG (Fats, Oils, and Greases). Improper disposal of FOG can lead to costly plumbing repairs or an unpleasant sewer backup, along with costly grease removal and associated equipment repairs to the City's collection and treatment system. To avoid these clogs and costly plumbing issues, here are a few ways to keep drains clear during this Holiday Season.

When you’re finished cooking, collect liquid grease and oils in a sealable container that you can reuse. For solid grease that cannot be poured into the container, you should wipe clean with a paper towel, and put it in the trash. Food scraps should also go in the trash. Scrape off excess food from pots and plates before rinsing them in the sink. For larger amounts of grease, let it cool, then pour or scrape the hardening grease into a sealable container, and dispose of it in the trash.
