Fat, Oil, Grease, Grit:
The Clark County Water Reclamation District advises residents to keep cooking fats, oil, grease and grit (FOGG) out of our community’s sewer system with the “Pain in the Drain” campaign.

When fat, oil and grease are poured down the drain, they stick to the sewer pipe walls creating layers of buildup that restrict the wastewater flow. The result can mean sewer blockages and overflows, and the need to clean and replace sewer pipes more often. Gritty products such as coffee grounds, eggshells and aquarium gravel get trapped in greasy buildup and make the problem worse. Follow these disposal tips:

  • Never pour fat, oil, grease and grit down the sink.
  • Before washing your pots, pans and dishes, wipe them with dry paper towels and throw the paper in the trash.
  • Pour fat, oil, grease and grit into a disposable container such as an empty glass jar or coffee can. Once cooled and solidified, put a lid on the container before placing it in the trash.
  • Minimize the use of the garbage disposal to get rid of food scraps. Garbage disposals chop food into small pieces but can cause a blockage in a pipe. Use a sink strainer to catch food times and empty contents into the trash.

 

Fire Extinguishers:
Republic Services accepts fire extinguishers at any
transfer station or solid waste landfill. They must be empty with the valve removed.
