Watch What You Put Down Your Garbage Disposal

Gargabe Disposal SinkeratorDo you know the busiest day of the year for most plumbers is the day after Thanksgiving? As you know, most families prepare large meals during the holiday weekend for family and house guests – it’s a time when most homes get much more use than normal. With the additional wear and tear in your kitchen and bathrooms, it’s a busy time when plumbers are out clearing pipes, unclogging toilets, repairing garbage disposals and working on water heaters.

Eliminating food scraps from the kitchen is a large part of meal preparation. With all the action garbage disposals experience this time of year, we’d like to remind you of foods that can create problems for most disposals. To help prevent emergency plumbing services during the holidays, avoid putting these foods into your garbage disposal:

  • Grease and Oil
  • Pasta and rice
  • Stringy vegetables
  • Vegetable peels
  • Coffee grounds
  • Seeds and pits
  • Bones
  • Bulk foods (large quantities of food)
  • Trash (items that should go in the trash, like paper products and cigarettes butts
