Fat-Free Sewers
Keeping our Sewers Clear
Sewer overflows and backups can cause health hazards, damage home interiors, and threaten the environment. An increasingly common cause of overflows is sewer pipes blocked by grease. Grease gets into the sewer from household drains, as well as from poorly maintained grease traps in restaurants and other businesses. Most of us know grease as the byproduct of cooking. Grease is found in such things as: 
  • Baking goods
  • Butter and margarine
  • Cooking oil and shortening
  • Dairy products
  • Food scraps
  • Lard
  • Meat fats 
  • Sauces

The easiest way to solve the grease problem and help prevent overflows of raw sewage is to keep this material out of the sewer system in the first place.
