Rather than pouring grease down the drain, PCWASA officials encourage Peachtree City residents and property owners to let grease cool, pour it into a can or container, and dispose of it in the trash. The Authority even has reusable grease can covers available at its headquarters for free, while supplies last, to aid PCWASA customers in this process.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that nearly half (47%) of all sewer spills and overflows are caused by fats, oils, and grease (FOG). For more information on environmental protection through proper grease disposal, contact the Authority’s Xavier Davis at 770-487-7993, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
