How To Avoid Garbage Disposal Problems

July 31, 2017

Garbage disposals are great to have in any household because they prevent stinky garbage cans and make clean up after an evening of cooking a breeze. How can you ensure that your garbage disposal continues to work properly and efficiently? You must be very careful about what you send down your disposal.


Garbage disposals are meant to break down foods and send them through the pipes. Just because you may think something is safe to put into the disposal does not mean that it is.


The following items should never be placed in the garbage disposal:


Fat or Grease



Stringy Vegetables

Potato Skins

Whole Fruits or Vegetables

Coffee Grounds


If there is ever an issue with your garbage disposal don’t take the risk of sticking your hand down the drain. Let one of our professionals solve the problem for you!
