You have two choices, move the pipes (plumber), or cut the ends of the drawers off (carpenter).

You can also pull the fronts off of the drawers, pitch the drawers and nail them to the front as a false drawer. So you have several options. I would suggest next time having all your measurements with you when you purchase cabinets, and cabinets shouldn't be an impulse buy.

Yup, two more options to consider (after you pitch the drawers):
-put a stick (1x3?) behind the drawer opening and screw the drawer fronts to that
-cut out the drawer divider and install a door
