...poured down kitchen sinks lead to messy—and expensive—clogs for you and the City of Columbia!
 

The City of Columbia spends an average of $1.5 million annually and 4,500 hours toward unclogging and cleaning the wastewater collection system lines each year. Costs associated with unclogging these stoppages are passed on to City customers through sanitary sewer fees.
 

Grease clogs pipes!Not even soap and hot water can stop them! In your house, it's a sewer back-up. In the street, it's a sanitary sewer overflow. No matter where they happen, grease clogs are:
 

  • Disgusting
     
  • Expensive
     
  • AND avoidable!
