Colorado Springs Utilities says the biggest day of the year for wastewater back ups is, believe it or not, Thanksgiving.
The reason? People dump turkey fat, oil and grease down the drain instead of throwing it away in the garbage.
They recommend to dump the turkey fat, oil and grease into a can, let it cool and then throw it away. Also remove the extra droppings in your pan with a paper towel and toss that.
Another tip, try to minimize the use of your garbage disposal and scrape those plates right into the garbage can.
