On Your Side: Pumpkin Tip

By  | 

13 News is on your side with a reminder not to put pumpkin pulp down your garbage disposal when you carve jack-o-lanterns this fall.

Roto-Rooter Plumbing and Drain Service recommends carving pumpkins on a thick layer of newspaper. When you're done, wrap the remains and throw the bundle in the trash.

They also say you should not try to flush the remains down the toilet either.
