What You Should Not Put Down The Drain This Thanksgiving


We’re here to tell you…we’ve seen it ALL! From eggshells to grease, these are just a few things you should NOT put down your drain this Thanksgiving, or in fact, any time of year. It’s not a myth that the day after Thanksgiving can be the busiest plumbing day of the year in America. With large gatherings, meal preparation, and post-feast cleanup, these can overload sinks and disposals which can lead to plumbing issues. It’s important to not avoid calling a plumber if you think there might be a plumbing issue. To be sure your home’s plumbing system runs efficiently and smoothly this holiday season, here are a few items that should never go down your kitchen drain or garbage disposal:

  • Fruit peels
  • Eggshells
  • Starchy Foods
  • Grease and oils
  • Coffee grounds
