With the festive season right round the corner and we all settle down to enjoy our home cooked Christmas meal and festive treats, it’s important to remember the possible impacts of what you put down your drains.
The leftovers from the roasting tin mixed with other things can quite easily be washed away down the plug hole but can pose a huge risk to pipes and cause blockages which can result in flooding and in some cases cause raw sewage to back up into homes.
What can you do?
- Scrape left over food into the bin, our drains are only designed to deal with deal with the 3 P’s – pee, poo and paper.
- Pour leftover greases and oils in container and dispose of them in the bin, even when liquid they pose a huge issue
We encourage you to sensibly dispose of your FOG’s this year and give your drains a present from yourself and only put pee, poo and paper down them.
