Benefits of a garbage disposal!

A garbage disposal is a device, usually electrically powered, installed under a kitchen sink between the sink’s drain and the trap. The disposal unit grinds food waste into small pieces that are flushed away through the city’s sewer system.

While many people think of their garbage disposal as simply a way to get rid of food scraps, there are actually several good reasons to have one in your kitchen. Here are just a few:

A garbage disposal can help reduce the amount of trash that goes to the landfill.

Food waste that is sent to a landfill can produce methane gas, which is a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. By grinding up food scraps and flushing them away, you can help reduce methane emissions.

A garbage disposal can help prevent clogged drains.

When an organic matter like food scraps build up in your drains, it can lead to clogs. By grinding up food waste before it goes down the drain, you can help keep your drains clear and flowing freely.

A garbage disposal can make cleaning up after meals simpler and quicker.

Instead of scraping plates into the trashcan, you can just scrape them into the garbage disposal. This saves time and effort in cleanup, and it can also help prevent attracting pests like ants and rodents who are attracted to food scraps in the trashcan.

Tips for using your garbage disposal

If you have a garbage disposal in your kitchen, there are a few things you should know about how to use it properly. Here are some tips:

-Never put hard-to-grind, stringy, fibrous, or oily wastes down the disposal. This includes chicken skins, celery, fruit pits, and cooking oil.

-You can grind small bones and fruit seeds, but don’t put larger bones or shellfish shells down the disposal.

-Run cold water while grinding food waste and for 30 seconds afterward to flush the disposal and pipes.

-Never reach into the disposal! If something falls in, turn off the power and use tongs or pliers to remove it.
