Keep FOG Out of Your Drain

FOG is an acronym for Fats, Oils and Grease that comes from cooking, cooking products such as oil, shortening, lard, butter, and food products such as mayonnaise, salad dressings, sour cream, and other foods high in fat. 

When poured down drains, even in small amounts, FOG tend to accumulate inside pipes. When it enters the sanitary sewer system, it can harden and cause blockages. Blockages can contribute to sewer back-ups and overflows. 

How to Dispose of FOG:

  • Pour and wipe grease from cooking into a can, let it cool, and throw it in the trash.
  • Recycle all used fryer oils.
