Can the Grease

Can it, cool it, toss it!

After grilling or frying,
Don’t put fats, oils or grease down the drain:
“Can it, cool it, toss it!.”

Putting grease down the drain can eventually mean clogs for you, potential backups into your basement and sewage overflows in the WSSC Water system. So please do your part by disposing of fats, oils and grease the proper way.

How to properly dispose of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)

  1. Pour them into a can
  2. Put a lid on the can
  3. Put the can in the refrigerator to let the grease cool
  4. Once the can is full, throw the can into the trash.
  5. And keep the can covered so the melted grease doesn't spill into your trash.

Can it.  Cool it.  Toss it.
