You use your garbage disposal daily, but you may not think about it unless it stops working.

The average garbage disposal should last about 10 to 12 years before it needs to be replaced, if it’s used properly. Improper use or lack of maintenance, however, could shorten that lifespan considerably.

Proper Use of the Garbage Disposal

Some people take the name garbage disposal a little too literally. Although it is built to be durable, it is not designed for disposal of household items or large quantities of kitchen debris. A disposal is designed to cut soft foods into small pieces so it can be washed down the drain.

Items that should never go down the disposal include:

  • Bones of any kind.
  • Coffee grounds.
  • Non-food items.
  • Grease.
  • Anything that’s stringy or fibrous – like celery, corn husks, or onion peels.

These items can dull blades, creating the need to repair or replace the disposal.


“We are truly grateful for everyone’s quick response to our flood in the main building here at St. Cyprian Church. The workers were tremendous in their search-and-find techniques to locate our buried sewer main line. The clean out was a difficult and tedious job but they stayed with it for hours. On Friday, business was as usual here and it would not have been if your company had not come out to the rescue. I’m sure the parishioners are happy to know that the bathrooms are available and that our problem has been eliminated. Be assured that your kindness and efficiency are appreciated. We are also grateful that you recognize our financial limitations. May our gracious God bless you all for your care.” –-St. Cyprian Staff
