Things to Never Put Down Your Garbage Disposal
While garbage disposals are designed to handle much of our kitchen waste, there are a handful of items that should be tossed in the trash instead. Stuffing your disposal with the wrong items can create bad odors in your kitchen, serious clogs within your pipes, and a broken system.
In order to avoid a costly repair or replacement, you should never put the following items down your garbage disposal:
- Fat, grease, and oil
- Seafood shells
- Fibrous vegetables such as celery
- Potato peels
- Fruit pits
- Coffee grounds
- Onion skins
Vegetable scraps, cooked meat, small bones, fruit scraps, ice, leftovers, and other small food items are all perfectly safe to put in your garbage disposal.
