Fats, Oils, & Grease (FOG)
Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) are a hidden danger to our community. LUS has taken the initiative to educate its customers on the harmful effects of FOG and on the prevention steps our customers need to take. Disposing of your Fats Oil & Grease the right way can prevent sewer lines from blockage or overflow. Protect Lafayette and SAVE MONEY!
Keeping our drains FOG free is as easy as 1-2-3!
1. Can the Grease
Pour used cooking grease into an empty, heat safe container, such as a soup can, and store it in the freezer. Once solidified, toss the can into the garbage.
2. Scrape Your Plate
Wipe all pots, pans, dishes, and cooking utensils with a paper towel prior to washing to absorb the grease.
3. Catch the Scraps
Eliminate using the garbage disposal. Catch food scraps in your sink with a basket or strainer and toss them into the trash or compost bin.
Thanks for doing your part to prevent fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering the wastewater collection system!
