Proper Grease Disposal

Greases and oils should not under any circumstance be pourded down drains or flushed down toilets. Grease products create a sludge when mixed with waste water, and can quickly clog sanitary drain lines in your home or in the municipal system. Cleaning these grease clogs can be costly to homeowners and taxpayers. Grease and oil products like bacon fat, cooking oil, tuna oil, salad dressings, meat gravys and au jus, melted butter, etc. should be disposed of as solid waste in your trash container.
