Metro Vancouver tackles grease, ‘fatbergs’ in sewer systemMetro Vancouver tackles grease, ‘fatbergs’ in sewer system<div class="ExternalClassB04921F60F9E42F2846BE6183742452D"><p>A small amount of cooking grease down the drain can result in big problems for Metro Vancouver’s sewer system.</p><p>Once down the drain, grease hardens and can create ‘fatbergs’ – giants blobs of grease, wipes and other ‘unflushables’. This can lead to blocked sewers and sewage overflows into homes, businesses and the environment. As a region, Metro Vancouver spends $2 million every year to deal with grease issues in its wastewater system.</p><p>Metro Vancouver is asking residents to put cooking grease in their green bins instead of down the drains as part of its “Wipe It, Green Bin It” campaign, which launched on September 25. Grease includes fats and oils, such as high-fat dairy products, cooking oils, meat fats, salad dressings and butter. Small amounts of cooking oil and grease can go in the green bin. Larger amounts of grease, such as from a deep fryer, should be taken to a depot.</p><p>The Wipe It, Green Bin It initiative will run for two weeks around Thanksgiving, followed by a two-month campaign starting in late December. Keep an eye out for our outreach teams in grocery stores and farmers’ markets across the region. </p><p><a href="/">Visit the website</a></p><p><a href="https://vimeo.com/219038353" target="_blank">Watch the video</a></p></div>http://heimat-deutschland.info/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue35-wipeit-greenbinit.jpg2017-09-29T07:00:00ZGP0|#910cbf3d-ad4b-48c1-8bf2-299ca0587371;L0|#0910cbf3d-ad4b-48c1-8bf2-299ca0587371|Issue 35;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass2C99671043E14C95A2697507FD3DB471"><p>​Metro Vancouver is asking residents to put cooking grease in their green bins instead of down the drains as part of its "Wipe It, Green Bin It" campaign, this Thanksgiving.  A small amount of cooking grease down the drain can result in 'fatbergs' – giants blobs of grease, wipes and other 'unflushables' – that block sewers and sewage overflows into homes, businesses and the environment.
