For Española


  • Scrape food scraps into the trash or compost bin
  • Use a strainer in the sink to catch food scraps and other material and empty the strainer into the trash or compost bin.
  • Pour grease into a container, let it harden and throw it in the trash.
  • Stop using your garbage disposal or minimize its use.
  • Wipe pots, pans, and dishes with dry paper towels before rinsing or washing them, then throw paper towels in the garbage.
  • Rinse dishes and pans with cold water before putting them in the dishwasher.


  • Don’t pour grease down sink drains or toilets!
  • Don’t use cloth towels or rags to scrape oil or grease off plates and utensils because grease will drain to the sewer when you wash the towels.
  • Don’t run water over dishes, pans, fryers, or griddles to wash oil and grease down the drain!
