VILLAGE RESIDENTS WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH FOGPosted on 2016-07-18
WHAT IS FOG?
Fats, oils and grease (FOG) are found in food scraps, meat fats, lard, oil margarine, butter, sauces, mayonnaise, ice cream and soups. FOG is commonly associated with fried goods and baked goods prepared at home or in a food establishment. When FOG is not disposed of properly, it can clog your homes plumbing as well as Village Sewers. As the FOG builds up, it restricts the flow in the pipe and can cause untreated wastewater to back up into homes and businesses, resulting in high costs for cleanup and restoration. Residential households generally contribute fats, oils and grease into the sewer system by washing it into the plumbing system through the kitchen sink.
It is important for everyone to understand just how harmful their contribution to FOG in the sewer system can be. Fats, oils and grease that accumulate and eventually clog sewer pipes cost the Village thousands of dollars every year repairing pump stations and removing grease from the system. Excessive FOG in the sewer system affects local wastewater rates.
Keeping FOG out of the sewer system helps everyone in the Community.
How Can You Help?
Residential households generally contribute fats, oils and grease into the sewer system by washing it into the plumbing system through the kitchen sink. Just a few simple actions can prevent the buildup of fats, oils and grease in your home and the sewer system. Follow these easy tips and not only will your family be protecting the environment from sanitary sewer overflow, but you may never have to call a plumber again!
Store it, Don’t Pour it!
Never pour FOG down sink drains or toilets
Never pour FOG down garbage disposals
Never pour food scraps down the garbage disposal
Never dispose of FOG outside, on the ground, or down the storm drain
OTHER ITEMS THAT SHOULD NEVER BE FLUSHED DOWN A TOLIET INCLUDE:
CIGARETTES, BABY WIPES, RUBBER GLOVES, TAMPONS AND CONDOMS
Pour small amounts of grease into a non-recyclable container (juice can, empty milk carton, coffee cans, pet food cans.) Make sure the grease hardens before disposing of it in the trash.
Before washing, scrape and dry wipe pots, pans and dishes with paper towels and dispose of materials in the trash.
Use sink strainer to catch food items, then empty the strainer into the trash.
Limit the use of home garbage disposals
