WHAT IS A FATBERG?
So what can you do to prevent fatbergs?
- Watch what you flush. Human waste and toilet paper only.
- Watch what you pour down the sink. Its not the place to dump oils, fats, grease or dairy. After cooking, let them cool off. For fats that will solidify, let them harden in a disposable container, then throw it in the bin. Pour liquid oil back into the container it came in and screw the lid on tight before you dispose of it.
