Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham has been contacted by Thames Water about a campaign that they have been running called Bin it, don’t block it. The campaign aims to stop people from pouring fat, oil and grease down the drain and flushing wet wipes down the toilet. Pouring fat, oil and grease down the drain and flushing wet wipes down the toilet mix together in the sewers creating disgusting “fatbergs” which blocks pipes and cause stinks.
