Putting the wrong things down your sink or drain can block and erode your pipes. This can cause sewage overflows inside your home. Overflows are extremely damaging to your property and very expensive for you to repair.
Putting the wrong things down the sink or drain also impacts our sewerage network. It causes blockages and overflows at our sewage treatment plants, which we have to clear and dispose of. This dramatically reduces the efficiency of the sewage treatment process, and it increases the overall cost of sewage treatment.
Bin it. Don't block it.
Keep a kitchen caddy next to your sink
for food scraps and coffee grounds
Stop fatty build ups in your pipes by
putting excess cooking oil in the bin
Strain your drain
Sink strainers are a great way
to keep the plumber away
