Why should I care about FOG?

Residential households contribute greatly to the build-up of FOG in the sewer lines because of the amount of grease washed into the plumbing system, usually through the kitchen sink. The results can be: raw sewage overflowing in your home or your neighbor's home; an expensive and unpleasant cleanup; raw sewage flowing into parks, yards, and streets; Potential contact with disease-causing organisms; and an increase in operation and maintenance costs for local sewer agencies leading to higher sewer bills for customers.
