Grease Free Gets a Face Lift

All utilities have an educational campaign to educate their customers about sanitary sewer overflows (read: wastewater spilling up over manholes into backyards, neighborhoods, creeks and streams, GROSS). As terrible as these are, the are completely avoidable if you avoid putting items down the drain that will cause clogs in the pipes.

These items include:

  • Grease
  • Fats
  • Oils
  • Wipes
  • Debris

If you have lived in Charlotte for awhile you may have seen our “Angry Hamburger” Grease Free campaign around town.

Grease Free Mascot “Angry Hamburger”

Well, the Angry Hamburger is being retired and we have released a new education campaign called Flow Free. This campaign can be used to message about one specific item that can’t go down the drain or all of them.

We’ve made some fun commercials to illustrate the point.

And we will also have targeted messages out in the community using various media outlets. CWAT_June16_FFposter_english(F).png

Let us know what you think in the comments, and remember do not put grease, fats, oils, wipes or debris down the sink or toilet.
