Sonora, CA — Some Tuolumne County agencies have put out tips for avoiding problems when cooking the Thanksgiving dinner.
The information was provided jointly from T.U.D., the Jamestown Sanitary District, Twain Harte Community Services District, Tuolumne City Sanitary District, and Tuolumne County Solid Waste Department.
Below are disposal tips for waste oil, fats and grease
• Avoid pouring fats or vegetable cooking oils down the drain because liquid fats solidfy in the pipes and create clogs.
• After grease has cooled, scrape the grease into a container with a tight fitting lid. Solidify in the refrigerator before putting it in the trash.
• Never put hard to grind items in your garbage disposal, including poultry skins, egg shells, carrots, celery, pumpkin pulp, banana peels or pasta.
