It would help if people didn't block the sewers by putting stuff down them that shouldn't be put down them.
When I did some research several years ago I found that there are products marketed as "flushable" yet there appears to be no-one agreeing that our sewage systems can cope with them. Thames Water-love them or hate them-say that all that should be flushed down the loo is: wee, poo and toilet tissue (ie the tissue paper that is designed to fall apart when wet).
Add to that the number of households and commercial organisations who tip oils and fat down the drain and you get these fatbergs.
Companies cooking commercially should get themselves a used cooking oil collection. In Ealing these used to be free but that may have just been a start-up project organised by the Council. (There may be a minimum amount but I'm sure that companies can club together.)
If one of these commercial companies near me did not appear to be doing this I would introduce them to this website:
http://www.properoils.co.uk/ (There'll also be other companies.)
Householders can take their used cooking oil to both the Acton and Greenford Reuse & Recycling Centres according to the LBE website. (Keep separate from engine oil.)
Good guidelines here for dealing with used cooking oil:
