Can the FOG
Household cooking, much like its commercial counterpart, generates FOG pollutants. These substances are responsible for most stoppages in the sewer system and could also cause harm the environment. FOG should never be poured down the kitchen sink. Our program instead recommends collecting FOG in a can, sealing it with our free reusable lid and allowing to solidify before disposing of it in your trash.
Wipes Clog Pipes
It is a common misconception that “flushable” baby wipes can be flushed down the toilet. Such products can frequently block pipes and cause sanitary sewer overflows and possible harm to the environment.
A more detailed overview of the Wipes Clog Pipes program can be found here.
When flushing remember the three Ps: pee, poop, and paper and consult the following list of items to never flush:
- Personal and baby wipe
- Tampons and sanitary products
- Facial tissues
- Paper towels
- Cotton balls and swabs
- Cat litter
- Dental floss
- Prescription drugs
- Cigarette butts
C.O.R.E. - Cooking Oil Recycling Effort
Not only can you help prevent sewer blockages, but you can also be environmentally friendly by recycling your used cooking oil. Cooking oil is filtered and processed for use in many products such as livestock feed, soaps, biofuels and fertilizer. Cooking oil should free of water, soap suds and food scraps, and should be transported in a clean, non-breakable, leak-proof container with a tight lid. Please dispose of containers responsibly.

FOG BMP Platform
The City of Daytona Beach Fats, Oils, and Grease program uses FOG BMP to create facility profiles, organize its permitting system, digitally log manifests, monitor solid and liquid grease waste metrics, and adjust pumping schedules.
While not required, FOG BMP allows facilities to create profiles and log information from their grease disposal manifests themselves.
When a facility’s profile and primary contact is assigned, FOG BMP sends an initial onboarding email to the email addresses entered. If your facility has yet to receive such an email and is interested in submitting manifests digitally, please contact the City of Daytona Beach Fats, Oils, and Grease Program at the email addresses or phone numbers included in the contact us dropdown at the bottom of the page.
A more detailed overview of FOG BMP and onboarding information can be found here.
Alternatively, if your facility already has a FOG BMP account you can login directly here.
