Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)
Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) are by-products of cooking – there’s no way around it. How you manage these by-products can have a tremendous impact on home, business and the environment.
Typically, FOG includes things such as:
- Food scraps
- Meat fats
- Cooking oil
- Butter and margarine
- Sauces and more
The City has developed two programs to inform Edmontonians about proper handling of FOG:
The FAQ webpage answers questions about how fats, oils, and grease in the sewer system can cause problems. It also tells you what to do to prevent them.
The Commercial FOG video shows what would happen if FOG is not disposed of and treated properly.
