Waste and sewage

Here are some useful tips when it comes to waste and sewage

  • Don’t pour cooking fat down the drain or into the sewer. Fat solidifies and causes unnecessary blockages
  • Collect fat, margarine and oil in an empty milk carton
    and place it in the refuse container. Or soak up cooking
    fat with kitchen paper before you wash cooking pans
    under running water
  • Always have a rubbish bin by the toilet
  • Don’t use the toilet as a dustbin/garbage can
