Here are some tips to keep your pipes clear of fats, oils and grease.
Do: • Scrape food scraps into the trash or compost bin. • Use a strainer in the sink to catch food scraps and other material and empty the strainer into the trash or compost bin. • Pour grease into a cans, let it cool and harden then throw it in the trash. • Minimize use of the garbage disposal. • Wipe pots, pans and dishes with dry paper towels before rinsing or washing them, then throw paper towels in the garbage. • Rinse dishes and pans with cold water before putting them in the dishwasher.
Don’t: • Don't pour grease down sink drains or toilets. • Don't use cloth towels or rags to scrape oil or grease off plates and utensils because grease will drain to the sewer when you wash the towels. • Don't run water over dishes, pans, fryers or griddles to wash oil and grease down the drain.
Keep these items out of the sink: • Grease • Oil • Salad dressing • Cheese • Cookies & Pastries • Sauces and Gravy • Meat fats • Lard • Dairy Products • Food scraps
