Pouring Fat, Oil, or Grease Down the Sink Can Damage the Sewer System

Did you know that each time you pour fat, oil, or grease (FOG) down the sink, you may contribute to a costly problem in the sewer system. FOG coats the inner walls of underground piping and the plumbing in your home.

Over time, these greasy materials build up and form blockages in pipes, which can lead to wastewater backing up into your home or business, overflowing in the streets, and finding its way into storm drains and onto beaches.
