Thanksgiving Tips

Thanksgiving Garbage Disposal Tips

Thanksgiving usually means more food and more people in your home. You will probably be eating different types of food than you usually do. It’s important to remember that your garbage disposal is not a trash can and it can only handle so much. Review our list of foods to avoid putting down the drain and check out our tips to keep your disposal in good condition.

Here’s What Shouldn’t Go in a Garbage Disposal:
Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, Celery, Lettuce, Marshmallows, Oil, Grease, Gravy, Bacon, Fats, Bones, Egg Shells, Bread, Pasta, Rice, Pie, Coffee

Garbage Disposal Tips:

  • Run cold water while using disposal
  • Only use disposal for scraps left on plates; large amounts of food waste should be thrown in trash
  • Pour small amounts of lemon juice down the drain to keep it smelling fresh

If you do run into garbage disposal issues this Thanksgiving, call Lantz’s Lakeside Plumbing & AC at 512-267-1188.
