Wipe It, Green Bin It
Most Metro Vancouver residents know cooking grease shouldn't be poured down the drain, but many are unaware that dairy products, salad dressings and margarine can also wreak havoc on the sewer system.
"With Thanksgiving and the busy holiday season around the corner, we hope residents will think twice about washing items like gravy, yogurt or leftover salad dressing down the drain," says Richard Stewart, Chair of Metro Vancouver's Liquid Waste Committee. "Instead, simply wipe it up or scrape it in your green bin – it’s easy, quick, and won't cause problems in the sewer system."
A dedicated website – www.wipeitgreenbinit.ca – provides a list of what can't go down the drain, how to properly dispose of fats, oils and grease, and details of recycling depots that accept larger quantities of grease and oil.
