Once in the city system, FOG can contaminate local waters and even drinking water when manholes covers overflow into parks, yards, streets, and storm drains during heavy rains or hurricanes.
Communities spend billions of dollars every year unplugging or replacing grease-blocked pipes, repairing pump stations, and cleaning up costly and illegal wastewater spills. Excessive FOG in the sewer system can affect local wastewater rates.
So, keeping FOG out of the sewer system helps everyone. That's why we want you to BE FOGGLESS!
