Weekly  Announcement:
Are you aware that pouring cooking grease down the drain will cause problems in your home sewer system?  When hot grease meets cold water, the problem begins.  The cooling grease hardens and begins to build up in your home sewer, causing flow to slow down.  Eventually the drain will clog, blocking all wastewater flow.  The prevention is simple, don’t pour grease down the drain.  Even running hot water and soap down the drain will not prevent build up or break up the grease.  Dispose of your cooking grease properly in a container and put it in your household garbage.  Improper disposal of cooking grease causes expensive problems that can be prevented.
