Fats, Oils, and Grease Information

Fats, oils and grease do not belong in the sewer or your septic tank.  While pouring hot water and detergent into the drain along with your grease may allow it to pass into your line, the grease will re-form into a solid lump as it cools, blocking either your home’s sewer pipes or the main sewer system, or your septic tank.
 

  • Never pour fats, oils and grease down the sink or garbage disposal.

  • Before washing, scrape and dry wipe pots, pans, and dishes with a paper towel and dispose of them in the trash—mixing these with absorbent waste such as paper towels, kitty litter, coffee grounds or shredded newspaper will help prevent leakage from trash bags.

Blockages in the main sewer line can lead to spills which are hazardous to our health and to the environment.  Removal of grease blockages and the cleanup associated with sewage spills is very expensive and may result in liability and property damages.

Blockages in your own sewer line or septic tank can lead to wastewater backing up into your home or business, spilling out onto the streets and even finding its way into storm drains.  The property owner will either need to perform do-it-yourself maintenance, or to hire a plumber to clear the blockage.  Cleanup can be expensive for homeowners and even more so for businesses, which can also be subject to fines and closures.

Before attempting to unblock clogged sewer lines, we request that you notify us in advance.  Often, a grease ball is cleared from a property owner’s pipe system only to move out into the street and cause a clog in the main sewer system.  Such a clog can result in a sewage spill from a manhole.
