After cooking, let your fats, oils, and grease cool. For small amounts of FOG, scrape or wipe the pan. For larger amounts, scrape it into a covered disposable container. Either way, throw the bi-product into your trash.

Leftover turkey fryer oil? No problem. Residents may take up to 15 gallons of used cooking oil to their local landfill's hazardous waste collection facility – FREE OF CHARGE. Complete details at Monterey Regional Waste Management District or Salinas Valley Solid Waste Authority.

Got a clog? Here's what to do . . .

Call a Plumber to Remove Clogs

Many plumbers have attended partnering workshops to learn the latest in sewage spill prevention regulations and best management practices. Ask about their certifications when you call.

  • Don't use corrosive drain cleaners
  • Don't use copper-based root killers — copper is toxic to aquatic life
  • Never use combustible solvents such as gasoline
