A number of homes in Melrose MA were flooded with sewer waste when a main line was blocked partly due to built up grease. Grease, as described in the article https://boston.cbslocal.com/2019/07/15/melrose-raw-sewage-backup-cost-investigation/ has been put down the drain overtime. When greases such as waste vegetable oil and animal fat come in contact with water and air, they oxidize and degrade. As they degrade they be come semi solid and can create a sewer blockage, as shown in the article.

These blockages and the resulting damages are preventable. By using Lifecycle Renewables, you can put your used grease to good use. Call Lifecycle Renewables to recycle your grease instead of tossing it down the drain!
