Keeping any amount of FOG from going down your drain will help protect and extend the life of your sewer plumbing, the city sewer, and/or private septic system.
If each home and apartment in Taunton was able to keep one tablespoon of FOG out of the sewer system every day, would that help?
There are 256 tablespoons in 1 gallon and there are 16,000 residential homes and/or apartments in the City of Taunton.
16,000 tablespoons per day of FOG equals 62.5 gallons of FOG or 1.5 55-gallon barrels of fats oils and grease a day!
16,000 tablespoons per day multiplied by 30 days equals 480,000 tablespoons, which is 1,875 gallons of FOG per month or 34 55-gallon barrels of fats oils and grease a month!
16,000 tablespoons per day multiplied by 365 days equals 5,840,000 tablespoons, which is 22,812 half-gallons of FOG per year or 414 55-gallon barrels of fats oils and grease a year!
If everyone helps just a little bit, it will go a long way!
