Cease the Grease: Free Cooking Oil Disposal – Dec. 1 & 2

Tired of calling the plumber? Fix the problem before it starts; choose to not pour grease down the drainCease the Grease image and prevent pipe blockage. Stop by the City of Carrollton Central Service Center (2711 Nimitz Lane) from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, December 1 or Tuesday, December 2 to properly dispose of grease and cooking oil for free. The event is sponsored by Liquid Environmental Solutions. Proper disposal of grease will keep it out of the sewer system and away from causing damage to sewage and drain pipes and the environment.

City of Carrollton Water Utilities asks that citizens never pour grease down sink drains or into toilets; always scrape grease and food scraps from plates, pots, pans, utensils, and grills into a can or the trash for disposal; and do not put grease down the garbage disposal. Put baskets/strainers in the sink drains to catch solids and empty them into the trash. This will reduce plumbing issues in homes and eliminate sewage overflows into parks, yards, or streets. For more information, contact Water Utilities at 972-466-3425.
