Grease & Waste Disposal
Residential customers can help prevent sewer spills and overflows by properly disposing of fats, oild, and grease (FOG) within their households. Rather than pour grease down the drain, potentially clogging and damaging home plumbing and MWA sewer lines, let grease cool and pour it into a sealed container for disposal in the trash.
The MWA has a limited supply of grease can covers to make this disposal of potentially harmful household grease easier for residential customers. To receive a free, reusable grease can cover, ask for one at the customer service counter of the MWA headquarters on Second Street.
Below are some educational brochures on proper grease disposal in various languages and a link to the Georgia Sustainability website with more information on the proper disposal of grease and other household items.
