On those occassions where you need to impress your friends and family with great plumbing trivia and facts, be sure to share these bits of knowledge about the ever-useful kitchen garbage disposal!
Kitchen garbage disposal units reduce food waste:
Did you know that food waste is the largest type of waste entering landfills, and nearly 30-40% of the U.S. food supply is thrown in the trash each year? The installation of a garbage disposal unit in your home will help to reduce that amount.
Garbage disposal units reduce rodent problems:
Using a garbage disposal instead of throwing food in the trash will significantly help to reduce the possibility of attracting rodents and other pests. Keep rats, mice, and other unwanted animals from loitering and breeding around garbage cans and local landfills.
Nearly 49% of U.S. homes do not have a garbage disposal:

For Maintenance Free Use, Follow This Tip
While the kitchen disposal is a useful tool in the kitchen, it’s not meant to solve all your problems! Be careful not to toss everything down the sink. For maintenance friendly and clog free use, avoid tossing these items into your kitchen garbage disposal:
- Grease, fat and oil
- Raw eggs and egg shells
- Pasta, rice, potatoes and other starchy foods
- Pits, seeds and coffee grounds
- Fibrous foods like celery, onion peels, lettuce, corn husks, asparagus etc.
