Holiday Season Reminder

Please recycle turkey fryer oil and cooking grease,
and avoid pain in the drain!

Cooking fats, oil and grease constrict and block household drains. They can also block sanitary sewer mainlines which cause sanitary sewer overflows. Recycling helps to prevent raw sewage backups into your home, our streets and the Bay. Visit baywise.org for grease recycling locations and see our FOG Control page for more information. Posters and stickers are available at our Administration Building.

Fats, Oils, & Grease

Wipes Clog Pipes

Wipes Clog Pipes
Single-use wet wipes have gained popularity in recent years. Many of these products are marketed as flushable, but often times are not compatible with sewer systems and infrastructure. Other products are not intended to be flushed but end up being improperly disposed of in the toilet. Flushing these products presents an increasing problem for property owners, sewer systems, and ratepayers, since wipes often do not break down after being flushed. Wipes can catch on tree roots and accumulate with fats, oils and grease and become large obstructions in the pipes. Further down the line, they weave together and create giant rags which get stuck in pumps, collection systems, and motors, causing backups and equipment failures. This problem is experienced across the state, country, and worldwide as disposable wet wipe products become more widely available.
