Cease the Grease

Bring your fats, oils and grease to the Service Center at 1554 S. Clark Road, 7:30 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Please use a sturdy sealed container to prevent spills! Residential use only. City staff has the right to determine and refuse commercial wastes. Call 972-291-5126 for more information.

Grease disposal is also available during Environmental Collection Day.

How you can help

  • Use environmentally safe cleaning products instead of hard detergents and cleaners that can damage sewer lines.
  • Scrape leftover food scraps from dishes into trash cans.
  • Avoid using your garbage disposal. Cover the kitchen sink drain with a catch basin and empty into a trash can.
  • Keep sewers FAT FREE.

Wipes Block Everything

DON'T TRUST THE "FLUSHABLE" LABEL! Even products labeled "flushable" can clog your sewer line because their plastic fibers don't break down quickly. Wipes are designed to be strong and not break down when wet. Because of this, they don't break down in the pipes like toilet paper does. These wipes can cause major blockages in your own home pipes, or farther down the line at the water treatment facility. This includes baby wipes, bathroom wipes, facial or cosmetic wipes, personal hygiene wipes, disinfecting wipes, floor cleaning or dusting wipes, and toilet bowl scrub pads. 

Just don't flush wipes - plain and simple. Don't do it. They belong in the trash.
