NEVER pour FAT, OIL or GREASE (F.O.G.) down the drain. It can cost you:
HIGHER TAXES OR SERVICE FEES
F.O.G. clogs drain pipes under your home and under city streets. Mixing F.O.G. with soap and hot water DOES NOT keep it from hardening in drain pipes. IT WILL EVENTUALLY CLOG YOUR PIPES OR CITY PIPES, causing a backup and expensive repairs.
Grease from Cooked Meats
What to do:
Pour the F.O.G in a can
Wipe remaining oil from pan, throw paper towel away
Keep the can in the refrigerator until full
Throw in the trash
F.O.G Clogged Drains Cause:
A Health Hazard - untreated sewage on the ground
Contamination of drinking water supplies
Destruction of property - backups in basements
Destruction of infrastructure - sewer lines have to be replaced before their useful life is used up
Eventual regulatory violation and enforcement with possible fines leading to increased service fees
