Solidified fat in a pan

If you choose to put things like used fat, oil and food scraps down the drain, they won’t just disappear. They’ll go down into the sewer, get stuck together and cause blockages. Any business with food preparation facilities can take simple steps to help avoid blocked drains and sewers that are bad for business.


Our Bad Smells are Bad for Business leaflet for catering outlets contains advice on good kitchen practice and how to safely and legally dispose of used FOG. The leaflet has been endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

Read our charter and mission statement on our commitment to protecting the environment from pollution caused by FOG. See some quick tips for food catering establishments, or for more information about our Keep it Clear campaign visit the Keep it Clear website.
