Almost every kitchen produces organic waste of some kind, and disposing of this waste adds more time to your clean up routines. Garbage disposal is the ultimate way to cut back on the amount of time you spend cleaning.

Our professional plumber in Highlands Ranch, Littleton & Englewood, CO can assist you with choosing the right kind of garbage disposal for your needs, and provide you with valuable resources on how to enjoy this lasting convenience for years to come.
Garbage disposals may have fallen out of vogue with modern houses, but the benefits are definitely too good to overlook. One of the biggest benefits is environmental, as disposing of your waste in a garbage disposal system reduces the number of plastics you use to throw out your trash. Another huge benefit of a garbage disposal unit is that you can eliminate foul kitchen odors for good, as your food waste is ground up and contained.
Most of our customers choose a garbage disposal system purely for the amount of time that it saves them when disposing of their waste. Once you are finished with your meal, you simply dispose of the waste and continue with your day without having to worry about taking out the trash. Now you can spend more time doing the things you actually want to be doing, rather than being stuck cleaning up in the kitchen.
As with any modern appliance, there are certain ways that you should treat your new garbage disposal system in order to maximize the lifespan of the unit. Given the fact that there is a grinding process, it is essential that you only put non-solid waste into the disposal unit.
Foodstuffs you should definitely not put into the disposal include coffee grounds, as they can produce a sludgy mess within the unit that will cause problems down the track. Bones also present a problem as the grinder is not able to break these apart due to their strength. Rice and pasta can cause problems due to the way it increases in size in moist conditions, even when it is already cooked. The starchiness of potato peels, beans, and other similar vegetables will create a thick soup that is hard to remove.
Though this may seem inhibitive, there is a great deal of biodegradable food items that you can put into your garbage disposal, including almost all vegetable scraps excluding the ones mentioned above, meat scraps and fruit scraps, but it is recommended to compost the pits as well as banana peels.
