Fats, Oils and Grease Program

May 16th, 2018

FATS, OILS & GREASE (FOG) PROGRAM

Put Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in the trash where they belong. 

Sewer blockages can be a direct result of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) that you may be unknowingly discharging into the sewer system.  FOG comes from meats, lard, and cooking oil, butter, shortening margarine, baking goods, sauces and dairy products.  FOG can be found on cooking and eating utensils, pots, pans, and cooking surfaces that are usually washed into a sewer system through the kitchen sink. This allow grease to stick to the inside walls of the pipe, similar to the way fatty foods clog human arteries. The grease clings to the inside of drain pipes, that can eventually cause a complete blockage.

Each year, there are more than 15,000 sewer overflows in North Carolina. Many of these overflows are directly related to the improper disposal of fat, oil and grease in kitchen drains. These blockages are a serious problem that can lead to a hazardous sewage spill. Raw sewage could backup in your home and/or sewage overflow into yards and streets.

Your help is needed to stop these blockages from occurring by properly disposing of fats, oils, and grease.

Scrape or wipe fats, oils, and grease and other food residue from pots, pans, and utensils with a paper towel before washing or placing in dish washing machine.

FACTPOURING HOT WATER AND/OR DETERGENT DOWN THE DRAIN ONLY BREAKS UP GREASE TEMPORARILY. THE GREASE BLOCKAGE JUST RE-SOLIDIFIES FURTHER DOWN THE SYSTEM.

Keep your pipes running free by allowing cooking oil, grease and fat to cool and then pour them into a soup can for example, not down the drain. Trash the can, and not your pipes. The removal of a grease blockage and the cleanup associated with a sewage spill can be very expensive and could result in liability and/or property damages.

The Effects of FOG on the Environment

  • FOG accumulation in the sewer system causes blockages that result in untreated wastewater overflows.
  • The untreated wastewater flows into streets, storm drains, ponds, creeks, rivers, oceans and backs up into businesses as well as residential homes.
  • Sewer spills can: pollute ponds, creeks, and rivers; spread disease and most times requires expensive clean-up.

 

Thank you for your help in preventing sewer blockages and spills.

For further information call City of Havelock Public Services Department 252-444-6409

 

NEVER POUR FATS, OIL OR GREASE DOWN THE DRAIN
