Treating the garbage disposal like a trash compactor

Despite the name, not all garbage belongs in the disposals. Most garbage doesn’t, yet some homeowners want to cram their waste down there until the blades stop turning. Watermelon rinds, potato peels, and pumpkin carvings are common items that plumbers and handymen have had to remove to free the blades. “Say ‘garbage disposal’ and people think they can put anything in there,” says Tim Gaulke, a handyman and president of Northland Improvements in Shakopee, Minn.

Joseph Albergo, a professional plumber and an assistant to the executive director for the Plumbing Council of Chicagoland, said homeowners aren’t always the problem: If you’re having a house party, make sure your guests don’t dump everything down there.
