Grease and oil damage septic tanks

By |December 2nd, 2021|Categories: News|Comments Off on Grease and oil damage septic tanks

The county provides multiple ways to dispose of hazardous liquids - which can be found at: https://estero-fl.gov/for-residents/hazardous-waste-disposal. For more ways that septic system owners can protect our waterways, see our flyer.
