FATS OIL GREASE & GRIT (FOGG)

 

 

Just Can It!

FOGG from your kitchen and bathroom should be canned, not washed down the drain.  Just Can cooking fats, oils and grease from your cooking and food prepration and toss in the trash.  Grit should go directly in the trash. 

Putting these greasy FOGG materials down a sink causes 80% of all sewer line clogs. Raw sewage can back into homes and businesses, spilling out on to the street, and even finding its way into storm drains and back into Lake Mead.

We are asking each resident to do your part to help by keeping fats, oil, grease and grit out of the community's sewer system, by properly disposing of them in the trash.

Simple steps like disposing of fat, oil, grease, and grit in the garbage instead of the drain can help significantly! Just Can It and you won't be a Pain in the Drain!
