Garbage Disposal Dos and Dont’s

Our experienced plumbers have a wealth of expertise when it comes to tackling common garbage disposal issues. To enhance our customers' experiences, we've created an easy-to-follow guide that outlines the do's and dont's of safely operating their disposals.

The Dos of Garbage Disposal Systems

Cold water is a must. Running hot water can cause fats and grease to liquefy, later solidifying and clogging pipes.

Keep the water running. Running water will ensure an even flow through the disposal.

Don’t stop grinding too early. Run the garbage disposal for at least 15 seconds after the food has gone through to ensure that the disposal has been properly cleared of all debris.

Regular running prevents problems. Disposals that aren’t used frequently can rust and the engine can corrode.

Smaller pieces = better success. Don’t try to run large items through your disposal. Keep them small and cut them up when needed.

The Dont’s of Garbage Disposal Systems

Don’t stick any objects – including fingers! – into the disposal to clear a jam.

Trash belongs in the garbage, not the disposal. Never put plastic, glass, metals, fabrics, hair, rubber or paper into the disposal.

Grease and oil will cause clogs. Although they may go through your disposal, they will solidify in your pipes, causing future problems.

When in doubt, throw it out! If you aren’t sure if something can go down the garbage disposal, just toss it in the trash.

Foods You Should Never Put Down Your Garbage Disposal

Oils and grease

Poultry bones and skin

Corn husks and cobs

Potato skins


Coffee grinds
