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.
