It's a Garbage Disposal, not a Garbage Can.

Do you find yourself scraping your dinner into the sink when you've ate enough - instead of tossing your leftovers in the trash? Some homeowners might do this out of convenience or sometimes smell. However, you must be aware of the damage you're doing to your garbage disposal. Most garbage disposal troubles are completely unnecessary.

Garbage Disposal Do's

-Do keep your garbage disposal clean. Pour a little dish soap inside and let the garbage disposal run for a minute or so with some cold water after washing dishes.
-Do run your garbage disposal regularly. Frequent use prevents rust and corrosion, assures that all parts stay moving and prevents obstructions from accumulating.
Garbage Disposal Don'ts:
-Don’t pour grease, oil or fat into your garbage disposal or drain. Grease will slowly accumulate and impede your garbage disposal’s grinding ability as well as clog drains.
-Don’t put large amounts of food down the garbage disposal, especially things like egg shells and coffee grounds.
