Fats, Oil & Grease
When cooking fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they collect and stick to household plumbing and sewer lines. Over time blockages occur that lead to sewer backups, sometimes causing sewage to overflow from plumbing fixtures or sewer system manholes. Overflows are a dangerous situation and not taken lightly. Improper disposal of fats, oils and grease are a costly problem, so please dispose properly!
The following items should never be poured down the drain, instead they should be disposed of in the trash:
- Kitchen Grease
- Cooking Oils
- Grinds (Coffee, Egg Shells, Peelings, etc.)
- Kitty Litter
- Paper Towels and other Paper Products
- Disposable Diapers

Every main line in the Seaside County Sanitation District (SCSD) is cleaned every year. A jet truck flushes the lines with high powered water to clean the lines of any stuck or stagnant debris.
