Proper Use of Sewer
- Never pour grease down a sink or toilet drain! Instead, pour or scrape grease from pots and pans into a waste can. Allow the grease to cool and solidify (refrigerate if necessary) and then throw it away in the trash.
- You can scrape or wipe (using a paper towel) grease or greasy solids directly into the trash.
- Use your sink strainer faithfully to collect “greasy” solids and empty it into the trash.Whenever possible, avoid using your garbage disposal. Scrape solid materials into the trash for disposal.
- Avoid the use of additives that dissolve grease. This allows the grease to liquefy and pass down the sewer line causing problems in other areas.
