Sheffield families urged to stop pains in the drains this Christmas

Sheffield families are being urged not to cause pains in the drains this Christmas - by pouring fat, oil or grease from the festive roast down the sink.

Free gadgets are being distributed by Yorkshire Water with the help of Sainsbury’s and Waitrose which can collect the waste for recycling or proper disposal in the bin.

EkoFunnels are at Sainsbury’s while Fat Traps are at Waitrose for customers pre-ordering their turkeys from the stores.

Last year 2,635 sewer blockages around the Yorkshire region alone were caused by fat and grease.
