Help 'Cut the Fat' in our Sewer System

Fats, oils, and greases aren’t just bad for your arteries and your waistline…did you know that they’re bad for your sewers too?  Over time, grease can build up and block your pipes completely causing a sewer backup.


What can you do to help prevent a sanitary sewer problem? 

Never pour grease down sink drains or into toilets
Scrape grease and food scraps into the trash
Garbage Disposals ARE NOT permitted in Hamilton so try using sink strainers to catch food scraps and other solids and empty into trash
Use a hair strainer in the shower and tub
