It doesn't matter which drain you use, they are all connected to your lateral line, which ultimately moves wastewater from your property into a main line. Using your toilet or other drains as a garbage can will not only clog your drain, but can also create a problem that backs up your neighbors' plumbing as well.

No, oils at any state can still clog the drains and pipe, however cooking oils can be stored in containers and then picked up at no charge by the waste department.
Keeping your drains clear does not have to involve chemicals or costly plumbing services. Keeping things out of the drain that do not belong there, such as grease, large food particles, and oils, will go a long way to keep your drain clean. A natural way to help prevent clogs is to monthly pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by ½ cup of vinegar. Wait 30 minutes without using the sink, then flush with hot water for 2 to 3 minutes. If clogged drains continue to be a problem despite proper drain care, call a certified plumber to clear your lines.
If the plumber finds the clog is beyond your plumbing, call 940-349-8400.
