WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Thanksgiving is the time of year many people gather around the table with family and friends to enjoy a large meal and give thanks.

But according to CFPUA, it’s also a time of year clogged pipes can become an issue.

The company urges people not to put turkey, pies or sides down the drain, because they can clog the community’s sewer system.

You should always dispose of fats, oils, and grease in the trash, never down the drain.
