DO YOUR PART TO PROTECT OUR PIPES!

70% of sanitary sewer overflows in Houston are caused by clogs from fats, oils and grease poured down the drain and wipes flushed down toilets.

Put grease in its place! Dispose of leftover cooking waste with these easy steps: pour it in a jar, can, or bag, cool it, and once full, toss it in the trash.

Also, only flush the three P’s - pee, poo, and (toilet) paper. Everything else should go in the trash.

Together, we can all prevent clogs and harmful overflows! Learn more: www.ProtectOurPipes.org.
