At Your Disposal

There are lots of thing we put down our pipes that don’t belong there. We want saving your pipes to be easy, so here are a few quick tips. For more details on each of these items, just click a link.

  • Fats, Oils & Grease. Store all used fat, oils and grease (including bacon fat and butter) in a sealable, non-breakable container and call for doorstep pick up or find a drop off facility.
  • Medications. Collect unused medications and take to a Medication Take Back Event or to the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility.  Visit our Dispose It page for more information.
  • Not Really Flushable. Put all wet wipes, applicators and diapers in the trash, even if they’re labeled “flushable”.
  • Trash it. Foods such as coffee grinds, egg shells, pasta and more don’t go down the drain. They go in the trash or composting bin.

So, you are probably wondering what you should do with all this since you can’t put it down the drain. To learn about proper disposal practices, visit our Dispose It page.
