What the FATBERG?

What the FATBERG?

It’s everything you flush or put down the sink, but shouldn’t. Every wet wipe, batch of bacon grease, paper towels and even Barbie doll heads. Yes, Barbie doll heads. It all congeals, ferments and seethes beneath the streets, growing with every flush. All of our non-biodegradable waste, all of our overlooked laziness, blocking toilets and breaking sewer pipes. It’s a fatberg.
