April 26, 2024 | Blog

Key Items to Keep Out of Your Garbage Disposal

To prevent plumbing mishaps and keep your water running smoothly during the summer heat, here are some critical items to avoid putting in your garbage disposal:

  • Grease and Oils: These can solidify in your pipes, causing blockages.
  • Coffee Grounds: They tend to accumulate and can lead to challenging clogs.
  • Eggshells: Far from helping, they can stick to disposal components and cause odors and jams.
  • Starchy Foods: Pasta, rice, and bread can expand and clog your disposal system.
  • Fibrous Vegetables: Materials like celery or corn husks can tangle and potentially burn out the disposal motor.
  • Hard Items: Bones and fruit pits can damage the disposal blades.
