ARE YOU READY FOR THIS SUNDAY?

Game day is days away and that means great food, fun with friends, and yelling and screaming at the television. 

 

When you’re done with your menu and meal prep, be sure to have the playbook ideas below handy to defend your sewer pipes, intercept grease and block the scraps.

 

Together, this will result in a sure win and you won’t have to worry about overtime — or the call to the plumber. And, always remember the Hail Mary play for Fats, Oils and Grease: Cool, Contain and Call us.

 

PLAYBOOK IDEAS TO BEAT FATS, OILS AND GREASE

Defend your pipes: The playing field leftovers should end up in one spot – the trash. Your garbage disposal might be a good defender, but it could leave your pipes vulnerable to unnecessary clogs. Take a time out and scrape those plates and pans clear before you wash them in the sink.

 

Intercept grease: A good defense for clogs is to intercept the amount that enters your sink.  Simply pour cooled oil and grease into a sealable container, such as a coffee can, let it cool and give us a call to either pick it up for free or to find out where you can dispose of it properly.

 

Block scraps: With a simple and inexpensive sink strainer, you can ensure that your sink isn’t the end zone for foods.  A sink strainer will help catch the things you peel or cut.

OTHER IDEAS TO GREEN YOUR GAME DAY

Even if your team color isn’t green (which for this game, there isn't any), you can make game day as green as possible. Here’s how:

  • Take reusable totes to the grocery store before this Sunday to stock up on your game day snacks.
  • Serve locally-grown foods and locally-crafted beverages to all your fans.
  • Use reusable plates, cups, utensils, and napkins when entertaining. If you have to use disposable products, make sure they are made from recycled content.
  • Put recycling containers in easy-to-find areas for your guests.
  • Send your guests home with leftovers.
