Fats, Oils and Grease
When hot or warm FOG (fats, oils and grease) is poured down a drain, it will travel down the pipe, cool and become solid. This causes a build up that could clog the pipe and create sewer backups into your home, business or storm drain.

The fog can often combine with disposable wipes, paper towels or other solids creating large blobs called "fatbergs."

Besides causing damage to homes, business' and polluting waterways, these clogs and fatbergs can cost thousands of dollars and hundreds of man hours for cities and DPS crews to remove.

How should we dispose of fats, oils and grease?
Can it. Cool it. Throw it away.
Pour used cooking fats, oil and grease into a tin can or other container that won't melt, let it cool down, and then throw it away.
