It's no exaggeration that we live, work, and play in a watershed that flows to the Bay. When grease is poured down sinks, it can solidify and cause sewer backups into houses or onto streets. Raw sewage can enter storm drains, creeks and the Napa River, all of which is sure to harm wildlife. Please don't dispose of used cooking oil or grease down the drain.
- Wipe out pots and pans with a paper towel before doing dishes.
- Pour small amounts of cooking grease into a sealed container and place that container in the garbage.
- Large amounts of used cooking oil (up to 10 gallons,) including turkey fryer grease, should be contained and recycled through Recology American Canyon.
