Fats, Oils and Grease Prevention Protects the Environment

Excessive fats, oils and grease in sewer pipes, referred to as FOG, blocks pipes and can create pollution problems. FOG enters sewer pipes through restaurant, residential and commercial sink drains. Once in the sewer, FOG sticks to the pipe, thickens, and can eventually block the entire pipe. Blockages in sewer pipes can send sewage backward up floor drains in homes and/or out of manholes into streets and rivers. These sewage overflows pollute our homes and our environment.

Shredded Paper

RRRASOC is asking that residents no longer place shredded paper into the recycling, but into regular trash due to shredded paper not able to be effectively captured at the materials recovery facility.

Shredded paper placed into paper bags and into the recyling cart results in those bags opening or tearing, which causes the shredded paper to become mixed with other recyclables.  Therefore, the shredded paper becomes uncapturable and consitutes a contaminate to those other materials.

Shredded paper placed in plastic bags is also problematic in that the plastic bag constitutes a contaminate.  Plastic bags also reduce operational efficiencies and increase facility costs.
