Trap the Grease

Trap the Grease Logo11-2015_250x250.jpg

In the city of Tulsa, cooking grease is one of the major causes of residential pipeline and City sewer blockages. The spilled sewage eventually reaches Oklahoma streams and rivers, causing unsafe conditions.


By following a few simple steps, you can help prevent costly sewage overflows in the future.

Step 1

All fats, oils and grease should be poured into a coffee can, or other durable container, and disposed of in the trash can, not down the drain.

Step 2

Dishes and pots that are coated with greasy leftovers, should be wiped clean with a paper towel before washing or placing in the dishwasher. Toss the paper towel in the trash can.

Step 3

Scrape all scraps into the trash. Don't put any scraps in the garbage disposal. Dispose of them in the trash can or compost.
