Cooking fats poured down the sink, even with hot water and washing up liquid, can soon set hard in cold pipes. They mix with un-flushable items, like wet wipes, to create fatbergs.  

This increases the risk of flooding in homes, streets and waterways, causing more than 3,000 homes a year to flood.  

Dispose of your cooking fats responsibly.

Protect your home


Place leftover fat and oil into a container and once cooled, place into a bin or food waste caddy
