We have been putting pallets and other items out front that we're sure someone would want! The pile changes depending on what we're doing around here so drive by often and check it out! We will probably not put anything out during the upcoming snow storm - but will always have it there - weather permitting.

Current free items: wood pallets and a dog house (igloo style)

Wet snowy weather is just around the corner! Are you ready?
Make sure hoses are disconnected (they should have already been).
Get your bird seed out to feed the wild birds that will be looking for food.
Know where your water shut off is! Consider putting some type of marker there - if you have a water emergency you don't want to be traipsing around in the snow looking for it!
Same thing for your cleanouts and a sewer emergency.
Grab your snow shovel and enjoy!

We got this information and wanted to share!

As the country begins to distribute COVID-19 vaccines, there's no doubt that scammers are already scheming.

Medicare covers the cost of the COVID-19 vaccine, so there will be no cost to you. If anyone asks you to share your Medicare number or pay for access to the vaccine, you can bet it's a scam.

Here's what to know:
You can't pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine AND you can't pay to get early access to the vaccine.
Don't share personal or financial information if someone calls, texts or e-mails you promising access to the vaccine for free.

Enjoy the holidays!

Cleaning Chemicals

We’re not talking about dish soap or normal cleaners. Those are fine for normal use. The chemicals to avoid are harsh drain busters and industrial-grade cleaners. They can put excessive wear on your disposal and possibly even the drain line.

Instead, use ice cubes to clean off the blades, and a little dish soap to deodorize and break up any grease build-ups.

Egg Shells

Can you put eggshells in a garbage disposal? Sure. But should you? No. You may have heard that it’s a good idea to drop egg shells into the garbage disposal. The idea is that the shells somehow sharpen the blades mounted on the disposal wall. It’s hard to say where this theory got started, but if you stop to think about it, when was the last time you’ve seen anyone sharpening knives and lawnmower blades with a carton of eggs?

While eggs don’t do much to help your disposal blades, at least the shells themselves don’t do any damage. However, the next time you crack an egg, take a close look at the shell. You’ll see a thin membrane on the inside of the shell that can (like that thin membrane of an onion) get loose and lodge in the drain or around the impeller (the rotor that throws waste against the wall-mounted blades).

If you still don’t like the idea of tossing egg shells in the trash, you’ll be happy to hear they can be used in your garden.

Onion Skins

Chopped, diced, or in chunks, most onion waste shouldn’t be a problem for your disposal. The problem comes with the thin membrane that lies just below the dry, outer-most layer of an onion. That thin, wet layer is often removed before the onion is chopped, and thrown into the disposal. But the layer is so thin that it can pass through the disposal, missing the blades and wind up wedged in the drain, where it acts like a cargo net on a pickup, catching more items and holding them in place.

Oatmeal

Much like pasta, oatmeal is another expansion threat. Uncooked oats in particular likely to slip through the disposal untouched, only to collect and expand down-line. If you’re lucky, they’ll eventually flow out to the sewer. If you’re not … well, then it might be time to refresh your advanced drain-cleaning skills.

Garbage Disposal Week!!!
What NOT to put down the disposal....
Coffee Grounds!!!
Coffee grounds in disposal: Don’t do it!

Let’s start by debunking a common folk remedy. While it’s true that dropping coffee grounds into your garbage disposal reduces odors in the short term, it can actually cause more serious problems down the drain. To understand why, think about what used coffee grounds look like when taken out of a filter: They reduce into a dense, thickly packed pasty wad. And that is exactly what you don’t want going in your drain lines!

Leave the grounds out of your disposal, and use them to keep critters out of your garden instead.

Baby wipes, sanitary pads, and other non-woven products may technically be flushable, but that doesn't mean they break down in water like toilet paper. In fact, once you flush them, many of these non-wovens don't break down at all as they travel through the sanitary sewer system and into our wastewater plants. They combine with fats, oils, & grease (FOG) and other debris, causing all sorts of problems along the way.

When it comes to flushing, remember your three P's - pee, poo, and toilet paper. Everything else belongs in the trash!

Did you guess what it was?

An adult diaper!

DO NOT FLUSH Diapers down the toilet:
Whether cloth or disposable, infant and adult diapers should never be disposed of in the toilet. They are too large to fit through the plumbing of your home and cause blockages in District pipes that take wastewater to treatment plants.

Can you tell what this is?

Hint, it shouldn't have been flushed down the line and stopped up an ENTIRE apartment complex!
