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
