Whitechapel’s Monster Fatberg

This article on the BBC is entitled ‘Monster’ fatberg found blocking east London sewer.

It has now been cleared up and Thames Water have turned the mess into enough fuel to power three hundred and fifty buses for a day.

We’ve had these fatbergs in London before as the Guardian reported in 2015.

It seems the big problem is fast food outlets with dubious hygiene practices, who just tip the fat down the drains.

I know of someone, who had a problem with a pub near where they lived, which wasn’t handling its rubbish properly. A call to the local Council got it sorted.

So perhaps, the solution is in part, getting the Council to check the hygiene practices of all food outlets better.

Also, just as a plastic bag tax has cut their use, perhaps we need a wet wipe and a nappy tax to cut use of these products, as they are another big problem.
