Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG)

Are you ready to clear the fog about FOG?

We hope so, because the ECUA’s Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) program is aimed at helping to keep our community’s wastewater system — and your household plumbing — in outstanding health.

In many ways, FOG can be compared to cholesterol in the human body. Fats collect along the walls of veins and arteries, eventually clogging or completely blocking blood flow, which often leads to a serious cardiac event. The same can be said of FOG substances in our plumbing and underground sewer collection system. Used oils and grease will coat and accumulate on the insides of sewer pipes, creating blockages, which can cause sewer back-ups in homes and neighborhoods. That’s a no-win for everyone. That’s where your actions count!

Join the crusade today for safer pipes and a cleaner environment. Then go out and help a neighbor clear the fog about FOG.

ECUA’s FOG program makes disposing of used cooking oils as easy as one, two, three!

Collect your used oils and grease in their original containers (or pick up an empty one from a FOG disposal station).

Deliver your containers to one of our many FOG disposal stations. (See right sidebar for locations).

Pick up a new container while you are there. Fill. Repeat.
