Fats, Oils and Grease Program FOG

The program is responsible for:

Commercial Water Regulations

  • Improper disposal of FOG from cooking creates problems for both business owners and City of Pleasanton maintenance crews if the sewer system plugs.
  • The City of Pleasanton wants to work with businesses to help create a clean, environmentally friendly atmosphere that will maintain a positive image and profitable experience.
  • Grease Pumping Services

Residential Water Regulations

  • Fats, oil and grease are present in many items. Cooking oils, condiments made with oils, meat juices and fat are examples.
  • Do not pour FOGS down the drain. Doing so will clog sewer pipes..
