What’s the deal with fats, oils, and grease?

When cooking waste like fats, oils, and grease (FOG) go down the drain, it damages and clogs pipes. These clogged pipes cause sewer overflows which introduce harmful bacteria into Galveston Bay and the environment. You can protect your pipes and the Bay by throwing leftover kitchen grease in the trash and recycling your used cooking oil at an approved location.
