Problem Drain: Fats, Oil and Grease

Why are Fats, Oil and Grease a problem for a drain?

Grease hardens at room temperature and can cause blockages in home plumbing pipes and even overflows in your home or yard. These substances also cause clogging in the Public Utilities collections system.

Where does grease come from?

Restaurants, apartment buildings, schools, homes, churches, condominiums, shopping malls, hospitals, hotels, food processing plants and anywhere cooking occurs. Grease is a byproduct of cooking and comes from things like: meat fats, cooking oil, shortening, dairy products, lard, food scrapes, baking goods, sauces, butter and margarine.

Why should you care?

Grease related problems can cause sewage backups and overflows that are messy, costly and a potential threat to your health and the environment. That is why we want to help customers stop problems associated with grease before they occur.
