We would like to remind our customers to properly dispose of your F.O.G. (Fats, Oils, Grease)
- Allow FOG to cool. Pour any liquids into a sealable, disposable container and place in trash.
- Use a spatula or a similar utensil to scrape any solid FOG and food particles into the trash.
- Use a paper towel to dry wipe any remaining FOG residue into the trash. Place used paper towels in trash.
- Use a sink strainer to catch any food particles that may be left on dishware and place in trash.
When we think of what F.O.G. is, our minds think of common ones such as bacon grease, canola oil, or maybe even olive oil. A commonly overlook type of F.O.G. are some of our dairy products such as milk, icecream, or cheese. These sticky substances form a gelatin like goo that can lead to clogs in our sewage lines causing spills.
So please remember to Prevent the CLOG, Trash your F.O.G.
*F.O.G. scrapers are available at the CCWSA main office.
