Fats, oils and grease often accumulate in plumbing and drainage systems. They are a common cause of sewer system backups and overflows.
Sewer system overflows can threaten public health and the environment. The state may fine municipalities as much as $10,000 if grease is a contributing cause.
Tips for Residents
Many sewer backups occur between the home and the Town's sewer main. You can prevent costly and unsanitary overflows.
What To Do
What Not to Do
Motor oil recycling centers are available throughout the Town. Check with your local service station or car parts store.
