Avoid clogging your sewer lines this holiday season with this tip

“While cooking a Thanksgiving or Christmas feast is a part of holiday celebrations for many, officials with Evansville Water and Sewer Utility say what’s left over can cause a headache.

When greasy foods from holiday meals are poured down the kitchen sink, it can clog the drain and result in sewer backups, and according to officials, nearly 50% of all reported sewer blockages are caused by greasy waste entering the sewer system.

EWSU urges customers to not pour fats, oils, and grease down the drain this holiday season, unless costly repairs are on your wish list.

According to EWSU, common sources of fats, oils, and grease include cranberry sauce, gravy, salad dressings, cheese, mayonnaise, meat drippings, and cooking oils.”

It takes just a few seconds to pour grease and other oils into a can and seal it in a plastic bag. You can then put that bag in the trash for disposal. While this might be a minor inconvenience, removing a grease clog will be an even bigger headache!
