What are fatbergs?
Fatberg is used to refer to an amalgamation of sanitary products, wet wipes, fatty food waste and grease that builds up in the sewage system. It congeals and sticks to the sewer walls, with further waste adding to it and creating a snowball effect – one fatberg removed from London sewers in 2015 was 10 tonnes in weight. Fatbergs can cause major problems in the sewage system, blocking the passage of waste and potentially leading to flooding.
