WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM 24 UCW MARCH 2 - 8, 2022 Cease the Grease. Keep Wipes outta' Pipes. Grease, fat and oil – as well as wipes and other items – can block our sewer lines and cause wastewater to back up and overflow. This can harm our water quality and the environment. And wastewater back-up may even cause damage to your property that necessitates costly repairs. Warnings for Wipes Hand or baby wipes – even if they're labeled "flushable" – should NOT be flushed! They don't break down in our sewer pipes and can also cause blockages that lead to wastewater back-ups. Other items that should never be flushed include: • Paper towels • Diapers • Feminine hygiene products • Dental floss • Q-tips • Kitty litter • Medical waste • Hard objects in general Guidelines for Grease Please, don't pour grease and oil down the drain! • Let it cool down, pour it into a disposable container and put it in the trash. Empty plastic food containers work well – or, PWC offers free Fat Trappers (covered cooking grease collection containers). • Use a paper towel to wipe grease from pans before you wash them. • Never put meat scraps down the drain and compost your vegetable scraps or put them in the trash.
