Can I pour grease down the drain?
No. Do not pour grease down your drain as it is harmful to your household pipes as well as the sewer system. The recommended disposal option is to pour your cooking grease or oil into an empty food can or jar, let it solidify, and dispose of it with your regular household garbage. If poured down the drain, grease will accumulate in sewer pipes and pumps over time, potentially causing clogs and back-ups. If you have a grease trap, it should be checked and cleaned at least monthly.
