Don’t Put That In There!

A garbage disposal can seem like a miracle when it comes to scraping plates and disposing of items that might make your garbage smell bad, but there are many things to consider when using a garbage disposal. Not everything that will fit in the disposal is good for your septic system or pipes. So what can you put down the disposal with no worries about the septic system, pipes or damage to the disposal?

What Goes Down Garbage Disposals

• Small amounts of leftover food from your plate
• Small potato pieces and peelings
• Carrot peelings
• Coffee grounds and tea bags (someday these are not OK)

What Does Not Go Down Garbage Disposals

• Anything that is not biodegradable food
• Anything combustible
• Plastic and metal
• Cigarettes and butts
• Bones from any animal
• Hamburger
• Bacon grease or other grease
• Egg shells
• Potato skins or large amounts of potato
• Corn cobs or husks, lettuce, asparagus and other fibrous fruits and  vegetables
• Pasta and rice
