What are Fatbergs?

Fatbergs are becoming increasingly common, affecting the UK's sewer networks and wastewater systems. Fatbergs are the collections of fatty food waste, grease and wet wipes among other substances which can potentially grow to the size of a Boeing 747.

Info graph The problem of Fatbergs

They are caused by oil, grease and fat being poured down sinks, where they congeal and stick to sewer walls. Once this build-up has occurred, other waste that enters the sewer can often stick to the fat, causing a 'snowball effect' and gradually increasing the size of the Fatberg.

What Damage Can Be Caused?

During periods of heavy rainfall, Fatbergs can cause our sewer network to become overwhelmed which can lead to the flooding of foul sewage waste. This can cause serious disruption to the surrounding area, as well as damaging the infrastructure. It can also cause regular blockages to both domestic and commercial drainage in close proximity to the build-up.

Wet wipes are the most common sanitary product to attach itself to collections of fat and grease so it is important to refrain from flushing them down the toilet when possible.  Grease and fat traps offer the easiest solution to preventing the occurrence of Fatbergs by preventing grease and fat from entering the sewer system. We offer comprehensive fat and grease trap services, from installation to cleaning, removal and safe disposal, we can ensure you are not feeding the Fatbergs.
