Reduce plumbing costs this Thanksgiving

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities asks that residents use the following tips to prevent a costly repair this Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season:

• Never pour cooking grease or other fats and oils down any drain. They can clog your pipes.

• Freeze cooking grease and oils in a coffee can, or mix liquid vegetable fats with kitty litter or coffee grounds in a lidded container. Deposit it in the trash, or take it to a full-service recycling center.
