Help 'Cut the Fat' in Our Sewer System

Fats, oils, and greases aren't just bad for your arteries and your waistline: did you know that they're bad for your sewers too? Over time, grease can build up and block your pipes completely causing a sewer backup.

What can you do to help prevent a sanitary sewer problem?

  • Never pour grease down sink drains or into toilets
  • Scrape grease and food scraps into the trash
  • Garbage Disposals are not permitted in Hamilton so try using sink strainers to catch food scraps and other solids and empty into trash
  • Use a hair strainer in the shower and tub
