Difficulty: Easy
Action Area: Waste Disposal
Action Item: Sustainable Clean Up
FID: 504125

Description:
Prevent grease, oil, fats and other chemicals from entering drains and waterways. Scrape food scraps into the compost bin. Use a strainer in the sink to catch food waste. Businesses may enroll in municipal programs and ensure proper maintenance of their grease trap or exterior grease bin.

Reduced impact on environment and infrastructure.
