We're working closely with our customers to explain how to manage fats, oils, greases and food waste. We have three useful publications which are free to download below.
Everyone is responsible for helping prevent blockages caused by fats, oils, greases and food waste. If you run a catering venture, you’ll have more oil and fat than households.
Professional kitchens are a big cause of blockages in our region. These can be the catering departments of large organisations or smaller independent food businesses.
Discharging these substances is illegal. This is why you’re responsible for the careful and legal disposal of them to stop them from getting into the sewage system.
