Improper disposable of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) and “flushable” cleaning wipes can cause clogging issues, and improper disposable of pharmaceuticals can cause downstream environmental issues. Greater amounts of FOG and rags have been identified downstream of large areas of rental housing than of single family residences. The aim of this project will be to determine possible strategies to educate these residents about the issues associated with improper disposal of FOG, “flushable” wipes, and pharmaceuticals.
