Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes

Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes. Info here!

Simple Solution. Big Reward.

After big holiday meals, no one likes to be stuck doing the clean-up. But if you aren't careful with leftover gravy, pan drip-pings and sauces a grease-clogged drain could ruin your holiday and cost you a bundle.

When fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes causing messy sewer backups and expensive cleanup and repair.

The simple solution: Pour the grease into a can, freeze it, and toss the can into the trash.

Get to know Nadaka Nature Park and help protect the diversity and beauty of this unique natural area. This 10-acre forest in northwest Gresham was saved from development because it served as a day camp for the Camp Fire organization for many decades. Today Nadaka is a city park that provides an island of native habitat and a place for the community to access and learn about nature.

Come enjoy this neighborhood treasure and help restore the forest understory. We will provide gloves, tools, training, and refreshments.
