F.O.G Friday

What is F.O.G.?

F.O.G. products are anything that contains fats (such as saturated animal fats), oils (such as unsaturated plant fats), and grease.

Most common examples of F.O.G. include:

  • Cooking oils (canola or olive oil, non-stick pan sprays)
  • Food scraps and leftover grease
  • Condiments (ketchup, curry paste)
  • Spreads (butter, margarine, cream cheese, jam)
  • Sauces (gravy, marinara)
  • Salad Dressings

Protect Your Pipes!

Never pour any Fats, Oils, and Grease (F.O.G) down the drain or toilet, not even hot water and soap will stop F.O.G from hardening and clogging your pipes! Clogged pipes can cause flooding and sewer backups in houses and condos! To prevent any flooding disasters always dispose of your F.O.G in your green bin.
