A message to customers encouraging them to “Can the Grease” was recently recognized by the International Association of Business Communicators South Carolina chapter. Greer CPW received an Award of Merit in the Communication Management – Customer Relations category during the yearly awards ceremony in Columbia Thursday night.

“It’s great to be recognized for our program but we’re even more excited about the continued exposure this will bring to a sticky problem. Pouring fats, oils and greases down the drain can be really problematic for our sewer system,” said Tony Garrett, Greer CPW Sewer Supervisor.

For the past three years around Thanksgiving, a time when most people are home cooking and grease could get dumped down the drain, the sewer department has delivered free grease cans to neighborhoods where clogged pipes have been a problem.

“The cans cost about four dollars apiece, but customers do not have to use our cans to make a difference. We suggest using an old soup or vegetable can to pour cooking grease into and tossing it in the trash when it cools.”, Garrett said.
