Garbage Disposal FAQ

While almost all modern homes have garbage disposals, they remain ambiguous to the average kitchen user. With that in mind, review these short questions that are commonly asked about garbage disposals, or call our staff for the answers you need.

Is There Anything I Can’t Put in My Garbage Disposal?

Actually, yes; there are quite a few things that you should avoid putting down your garbage disposal. You should limit anything you put into your disposal that isn’t water or a water-soluble material, which means it dissolves in water. Here are common things that people put in their disposal systems that you SHOULD NOT be putting in there:

  • Grease
  • Fat
  • Coffee Grounds
  • Sticky Substances
  • Fruit & Vegetable Skins
  • Seeds & Pits
  • Broths, Sauces & Drippings
  • General Food Waste

My Home Doesn’t Have a Disposal, Should I Get One Installed?

Not necessarily. Many times, a disposal will cause more problems than it solves because it gives owners a false sense of security when washing things down the drain. Your sewer system will thank you for not clogging it up.

Do I Need to Clean My Garbage Disposal?

To ensure the longest lifespan, it’s good practice to ensure the inside of your disposal is clean, unhindered by debris and properly functioning. However, please unplug the disposal before starting any cleaning.
