Please do not pour fats, oils, and grease down the drain. These substances can cause sewer drain backups in your home and in the City’s sewer system resulting in overflows that could send raw sewage and waste into the street’s gutter where it can make its way into the storm drain system that flows to Alamo and Ulatis creeks.

This is an environmental and health hazard and results in increased costs when the City has to cleanup clogged pipes and pay fines for overflows.

In Vacaville, we want you to collect your Fats, Oils, and Grease in a sealed clear container, then recycle it at the Vacaville Sanitary Recycling Center at 855 ˝ Davis Street. Used cooking oil can be turned into biodiesel and other useful products. For more information download the Grease Menace brochure below.
