Ensuring a Safe and Eco-Friendly Holiday Season in San Tan Valley


As the holiday season approaches, residents of San Tan Valley are reminded of the importance of safety and environmental responsibility. With festivities often leading to increased waste and potential hazards, it's crucial to adopt practices that ensure the wellbeing of our community and the planet. Here are some key tips to keep in mind:

  1. Proper Disposal of Cooking Oil: After preparing your holiday meals, remember that pouring frying oil down the drain can cause significant plumbing damage. To prevent plumbing problems, it's essential to remove oil and grease from dishes by scraping them directly into the trash can. For larger quantities of grease, use a jar, coffee can, or a similar container to collect it prior to disposing of it in the trash. Avoid washing grease down the drain with hot water and soap, as this can lead to it solidifying in your pipes or the sewer system, causing blockages.
  2. Choosing Recyclable Decorations and Wrappers: When decorating your home and wrapping gifts, opt for materials made from recyclable paper. Keep in mind that certain items like gift bags, ribbon, embellished gift wrap, and greeting cards are not recyclable. The same applies to batteries and electronics, which require special disposal methods.
  3. Fireworks Safety and Disposal: If you're planning to use fireworks, make sure to soak them in water overnight before disposal. This practice is essential for preventing accidental fires. Stay informed about local fireworks regulations, permissible days of use, and additional safety information to ensure a safe celebration.
  4. Disposing of Hot Coals and Firewood Safely: If your holiday celebration includes a cozy fire, remember to douse hot coals and firewood with water. Allow them to cool for 24 hours before disposal. This step is vital to prevent fires and accidents.
  5. Proper Trash Handling: Always bag and tie your trash before placing it in the container. This practice not only keeps your surroundings clean but also aids in efficient waste management.

By following these simple but effective guidelines, San Tan Valley residents can enjoy a festive, safe, and environmentally friendly holiday season. Let's work together to keep our community safe and green!
