Webpage Header2.jpg

dontpourgrease[1].gif   NEVER pour FAT, OIL or GREASE (F.O.G) down the drain.
It can cost you:
  • MONEY
  • TIME
  • 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.
                  Follow these simple steps:
            CAN IT • COOL IT • THROW IT AWAY

F.O.G Includes:
  • Butter-Margarine-Lard
  • Cooking Oil-Shortening
  • Grease from Cooked Meats
  • Food Scraps

What to do:
1. Pour the F.O.G in a can
2. Cool it
3. Wipe remaining oil from pan, throw paper towel away
4. Keep the can in the refrigerator until full
5. Throw in the trash
