Thames Water Commercial Services are supporting Local Authorties by offering fat, oil and grease (FOG) management services such as facilitating grease trap emptying, providing a disposal point for FOG wastes and installing FOG trap services through our partners at Aquarius. In July 2013 a bus-sized lump of fat, oil and grease (FOG) which became knows as the 'fatberg' was discovered in a sewer below London' leafy Kingston. The 15-tonne blockaged caused toilets to back up and damaged the sewer to such an extent that the road had to be partly closed for three months while the pipe was repaired. In 2013, 7000 properties in London and the Thames Valley were flooded with raw sewage as a result of 'fatbergs'.
The waste collected will be recycled into a biofuel with the ppotential to fuel London buses as aprt of the Mayers Buiodiesel Programme. If you would like to know more about these services please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
