Fats, Oil, & Grease (FOG) Disposal Survey

  1. Thank you for taking part in this important survey measuring foodservice establishments’ (FSE) knowledge and attitudes regarding fats, oils, and grease (FOG) disposal. Controlling the amount of FOG entering your pipe system protects your business from expensive plumbing problems, odor issues, and indoor overflows, as well as the environment and Athens-Clarke County (ACC) sanitary sewer collection system. Your thoughts and opinions will help us develop a FOG ordinance to help ACC stay within regulated sewer discharge limits. This survey should take ten minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous. We appreciate your participation and feedback.
