Fats, Oils and Grease
Cooking fats, oils and grease, if washed down the drain, can lead to sewage back-ups at home, your business or in the community's sewer pipes and into San Francisco Bay. No one wants untreated sewage backing up into buildings or streets!
Residential cooking fats, oil and grease
To reduce grease-related problems at home:
- Order a free FOG scraper for scraping plates before washing.
- Place large quantities of cooking oil or grease in sealed container and pour it out at one of EBMUD's residential cooking oil and grease drop-off locations or search for a nearby recycling location at BayWise.
- View our FOG frequently asked questions.
- Get more tips below in the Residential Fats, Oil and Grease brochure.
- For information about your community sewers, contact your local sewer system agency.
