When cooking waste like fats, oils, and grease (FOG) go down the drain, sewer pipes get blocked or damaged. These clogged pipes cause sewer overflows which introduce harmful bacteria into Galveston Bay and the environment. Protect your home and the bay by properly disposing of FOG.
Aging infrastructure, combined with improper disposal of FOG in single and multi-family homes, can lead to costly problems for both local governments and citizens in terms of sewer lines, home plumbing repairs, and environmental remediation.
Help Us To Fight The Grease Monster!
- Never dump any fats, oils, or grease down the drain
- Clean fats and grease from cookware and throw in the trash
- Once cooled, store oil in the freezer in a jar or bag
- Once the container is full, throw it away or recycle if possible
