Fats, Oils, and Greases aren't just bad for arteries and wastelines;

they are bad for sewers, too.

 

Sewer overflows and backups can cause health hazards, damage homes interiors, and threaten the environment.  An increasingly common cause of overflows is sewer pipes blocked by grease.  Grease gets into the sewer from household drains as well as from poorly maintained grease traps in restaurants and other businesses.
