Stay FOG-Free! Keeping Fats, Oil, and Grease (FOG) Out of Your Sink

The holiday season is a great reminder that when it comes to cooking oil, be sure to keep a lid on it - a FOG can lid that is.

The correct way to dispose of FOG is by letting it cool, pouring the FOG into a can, and sealing the can with a lid. Once cooled and hardened, the can should be discarded in
the trash.
Next, wipe the FOG from pots and pans with a paper towel prior to washing them, and toss the paper towel in the green or organic waste bin. Pouring FOG down your drain can cause a sewer backup in your home and may lead to a
sewer spill.

Feel free to stop by our office to pick up your own can topper to
celebrate in style while doing your part to protect the local community. Happy holidays from Leucadia Wastewater District!
