Your plumbing and sewer system are not equipped to handle kitchen grease. When you pour grease down the drain, it can solidify and cause a serious clog in your system. In order to help keep your plumbing in great working order, it is important that you properly dispose of your kitchen grease. Instead of pouring grease down the drain, pour the liquid grease in a plastic container that you do not mind throwing away. Place this container in your regular trash can. When cleaning out a greasy pan, be sure to wipe out the excess grease with a paper towel.
