Anglian Water provides some advice:
·" Only flush the 3Ps (that’s pee, poo and paper) down the toilet.
· Always put fats, oils and grease together with food waste in the bin, food caddy or specially adapted garden food digester.
· Used cooking oil can also be taken to the Leiston recycling centre."
