Don't Strain the Drains

The Town of Surfside’s Public Works Department urges residents to dispose of gloves, masks, wipes and cooking oil in the garbage and not the drain. As these materials meet cooking fat in the sewage system, they create a huge mass of solid waste that ends up clogging our sewers or even worse, damaging the lift station pumps by wrapping around the propellers. This causes millions of dollars in damage and poses hazardous risks to workers. Thank you for your cooperation.
