Can The Grease

After you are done cooking your holiday mean, city officials encourage you to "Can The Grease."

They said after grease, fats, and oils cool pour them into a metal can or glass jar and seal it with a lid.  Then throw it away.

City officials said it saves them and residents the expense of repairing pipes that are clogged with grease from cooking.  Fats, oils, and greases can harden and build up in the drainpipes of homes and the city sewer system and create blockages that cause sewage overflows.
