Dispose of Holiday Cooking Grease Properly

The Frederick County Division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management is working to get out an important message just in time for the holiday cooking season: “Do not let a sewer backup ruin your holiday by pouring fats, oils and grease down your drain.”

Frederick County wastewater staff advise residents, restaurants and service organizations to never pour kitchen grease or oils down the drain because fats, oils and grease can clog sewer pipes, leading to basement back-ups and sewer overflows that can damage a home, business and the environment. They advise that the best way to dispose of these items is to pour cooled grease into a can (such as a soup can) and dispose of it in the trash once it has solidified.
