In your kitchen, never pour Fats, Oil or Grease (FOG) down the sink. In your bathrooms remember the three “P’s”! Only Pee, Poo and Paper down the pipes. A little bit of good housekeeping by all can prevent an expensive call. Find more information about this on our Preventing Sanitary Sewer Overflows document (PDF).
The Pollution Prevention Program and SeQuential are have teamed up to offer Woodland residents free recycling of their cooking oil and grease at the City's Water Pollution Control Facility.

Just because the label says "flushable" doesn't mean that you should flush it. Unlike toilet paper, flushable wipes do not dissolve. Instead, they can become caught up in sewer lines, create blockages, and cause sewage overflows. Flushable wipes also get stuck in the City's sewer pumps.
Every year, our crews spend many hours repairing pumps that have been clogged by flushable wipes. Be kind to your pipes; instead of flushing, please dispose of these products in the trash can. For more information view our Think Before You Flush flier (PDF).
