Fighting the festive fat

Water companies across the UK are working with Sainsbury's and Waitrose to give away around 200,000 fat traps and funnels to people buying their Christmas turkey or roast. Each year, thousands of sewer blockages happen because people pour cooking fat, oil and grease (FOG) down their kitchen sinks.

These blockages can lead to flooding inside homes and businesses and are expensive to clear.

The traps and funnels being given away can be used to collect the FOG for recycling or disposal via the bin.
