Fats-Oils-Greases (FOG)

The department asks for everyone’s help with the removal of fats, oils and grease from the collection system. We ask that residents put these items into containers and into the trash rather than pouring them down the drain. These substances solidify as they travel through your pipes and out into ours. This causes blockages and back-ups over time and will likely cause raw sewage to end up in your basement.
