Help Save Our Sewers and Seas

If you want to help reduce the amount of plastic entering our seas, rivers and oceans, save yourself costly drainage maintenance fees and contribute to stopping the formation of environmentally damaging fatbergs, Unblocktober is for you. And it’s totally free. Unblocktober is all about making small changes to your habits that can have a big impact on the planet we all share. To get involved in Unblocktober, all we ask is that, for the whole calendar month of October, you commit to putting none of the following down your drains or toilets: cooking oil – pre or post-cooking, margarine, butter, lard, cooking sauces and condiments, food – even crumbs, and anything containing plastic – this includes wet wipes, tampons/ applicators/ wrappers, period products, nappies, condoms,
cotton buds, contact lenses, bandages and plasters, razor blades and dental floss.

To sign up to take part, visit and simply fill in the form on the website.
You’ll then be sent a free resource pack that gives you all the information and advice you need to successfully complete Unblocktober!
