Monroe educational campaign: grease disposal

Posted: Updated:

Grease is clogging sewer lines in Monroe, so public works officials are starting a campaign to teach people the right way to get dump cooking grease, fats and oils.

The News-Star reports that "Seize the Grease" public service announcements will spread the word that pouring grease down the drain can cause sewage backups.

The campaign is starting just before the holidays to remind people to properly dispose of grease while they're spending more time in the kitchen.

Public Works official Joy Jefferson says the right way is to let grease cool in the pan, pour it into a plastic bottle or container, and wipe or scrape out any remaining grease. Then the bottle and any wiped or scraped grease should go into the trash.
