Residential FOG: What should I be doing?

Never pour grease down the drain. Let it cool and wipe out all cookware using a paper towel. Dispose of it in the trash.

For liquids, keep a container to pour cooled liquids into (examples: coffee can, soup can, jar with lid) then wipe out cookware. Dispose of the container in the trash.

Use your garbage disposal sparingly. Food scraps cause odors, and blockages and are a major contributor to FOG problems in the sewage collection system.
