All I want for Christmas …. Is Fatberg free drains!

19 December 2023

As the holiday season is upon us and we revel in festive cheer, Clean Coasts, in collaboration with Uisce Éireann, is back with a spirited reminder to ‘Think Before You Pour’ and outsmart the mischievous Greasy Grinch. This Christmas and New Year, keep your plumbing blockage-free and safeguard your celebrations from unwelcome surprises.

Did you hear a knock at the door? The Greasy Grinch has been sneaking around the neighbourhood, searching for drains to block and Christmas celebrations to ruin! Whether you’re indulging in an Irish Coffee or preparing a festive feast, with the big day almost upon us, make sure to ‘Think Before You Pour’ and keep the Greasy Grinch out in the cold!

This festive season join Clean Coasts, in partnership with Uisce Éireann, and ensure all your cooking fats, oils, and greases (FOGs) are collected in a heatproof container, allowed to cool before emptying into a bin (general waste or food waste recycling bin if available).

Give your plumbing the gift of a blockage-free Christmas and New Year and avoid an untimely visit by the Greasy Grinch safely disposing unmelted fats and oils. Visit Think Before You Pour - Think Before You Flush to find tips for disposal and ideas of how to use Christmas leftovers. 

Outsmart the Greasy Grinch and enjoy the festivities without worrying about blockages in your wastewater pipes, overflows from sewers into homes, businesses, public areas, streams or rivers causing environmental impacts.

Clean Coasts and Uisce Éireann wish you a joyful and blockage free holiday season.
