Fats, Oils and Grease
You should never pour fats, oil or grease down the drain. Cooking fat, oil or grease (FOG) can clog the pipes at your house and in our system, and cause sewage to back up into your home, yard, street and waterways. Not only will you have to pay a plumber to fix things, JEA will have to pay for these cleanups, too, which can lead to increased utility bills.
Running hot water and turning on your garbage disposal while you pour your grease down the drain does not work. The grease will still clog your pipes.
Properly Dispose of Fats, Oil and Grease
- Pour cooking grease into a used can.
- Seal the can in a plastic bag.
- Put the plastic bag in the trash.
Commercial Fats, Oils and Grease Program
Keep your customers happy and your kitchen healthy! Any food service establishment or commercial/institutional kitchen that is connected to the JEA sewer system is required to participate in the Commercial Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) program. Our Commercial FOG Program helps you navigate:
- Facility requirements
- Grease trap maintance
- Best management practices

Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department Stations
JEA and Metro-Rooter provide used cooking oil recycling stations at several local Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department Stations so that customers can recycle their used cooking oil and grease.
Apartment communities, condos and homeowners associations
Multi-family communities are also eligible to participate in the JEA Used Cooking Oil Recycling program. Qualifying communities receive a recycling station which residents can deposit used cooking oil and grease into. A recycling company collects it, and then refines it into biofuel and animal food.

When you flush a wipe down the toilet, you are creating a situation that could clog your pipes and your sewer system. The wipes to not dissolve like toilet paper. They hang around in pipes and in the sewer system often with horrid results. They often combine with grease in the system to form a hard residue that's could cause a serious back-up. Even though the packaging on some wipes now says they were manufactured with “safe flush technology” we recommend you keep them out of your toilet entirely and dispose of them in the trash.
