Don't Let FOG - Fats Oils Grease - Spoil Your Thanksgiving, Holiday Get Togethers

November 22, 2017 |

Anyone who has cooked and hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for any length of time has faced unexpected annoyances. It could be the invariable uncomfortable political discussion over the dinner table, a failed dessert or the sleepy time naps in front of the TV after overindulging in turkey and dressing.

There is one other thing that could spoil what should otherwise be a day of feasting, and that would be a clogged drain. It is with this in mind, the Sacramento Area Sewer District is adding a reminder to all those cooks out there is to beware of FOG - fats, oils, and grease.

When cooking that dinner, there will invariably be excess FOG and how you handle it could make the difference between having clogged drains or not.  To address this, the Sewer District has posted information on their website advising how to avoid these potential disasters during the Holidays, and as importantly, be environmentally friendly.

That information can be viewed here, and Elk Grove residents can dispose of their waste oils at the city's special waste collection facility. Information on hours of operation of that facility can be viewed here.

One last note from a  long-ago Thanksgiving day disaster - celery stalks, carrot strips and eggs shells, among several items, are not meant for your kitchen sink's garbage disposer!
