Everybody Freeze!

Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle

After big holiday meals, no one likes to be the one stuck doing clean-up. But if you aren't careful with leftover gravy, pan drippings and sauces a grease-clogged drain could end up costing you a bundle. To help combat the fat, City of Gresham’s Wastewater Services is offering a free “Freeze the Grease, Save the Drain Kit” to residents.
