How to Properly Dispose of Various Products
Residents of the Village have suffered sewer backups
into their homes due to some residents throwing items such as Grease, Paper
Towels, Disposable Diapers and Wipes, and Feminine products down their
toilets and drains.
With just a little bit of help from ALL OF YOU, the Village's sewer lines will operate more effectively and less disruption in service will occur if we all follow these tips below.
Here are a few steps you can take to help prevent this problem:
· Do not put dairy products, fats, oil, grease or greasy foods down the garbage disposal or drain.
· Freeze small amounts of fats, oils and grease in a lidded container and dispose in a trash receptacle.
· Mix small amounts of cooking oil with an absorbent material such as cat litter or coffee grounds, place it in a lidded container and dispose of it in a trash receptacle
· Wipe additional grease from pots, pans and plates with a paper towel before placing them in the sink or dishwasher.
DO NOT dispose of any of the following in your sinks (Bathroom and Kitchen) or toilets:
*BABY WIPES - DISPOSABLE WIPES
*DISPOSABLE AND CLOTH DIAPERS
*FEMININE PAPER PRODUCTS
If you have a sewer backup, please contact our DPW at 516-482-2559.
