What is the FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) program?

These are substances that, when poured down your drain or into your garbage disposal, cause a build-up inside the pipes. Over time, this build-up will constrict the flow of water and eventually cause an expensive sewer backup into your home. To prevent a sewer backup, pour cooled oils and grease into a covered disposable container and throw it away in the garbage and compost all of your food scraps.
