Disposing of FOG correctly is essential to ensure your home’s plumbing and the Authority’s sewer lines don’t get “all choked up.” Pouring cooking grease down the drain is not recommended because as grease cools, it hardens, leading to “chokes” in your plumbing or sewer line. Even though we live in a warm climate, many fats harden at room temperature.

The aim of the Authority’s Grease Disposal Program is to help our customers capture and dispose of their cooking grease in an environmentally safe and effective way. Please return the used oil to the container it came in (if possible) or pick up a grease container that you can use to store and dispose of household cooking grease. Return your filled container to 1127 Highway 74 S, and exchange it for an empty container, ready to repeat the process. It’s that simple!
