7 things you should never put in your garbage disposal

Garbage disposals are fairly temperamental and can be difficult to maintain without a proper understanding of how to use the appliance. The Village Plumber can provide repairs when they’re needed, but we have some advice on how to keep your garbage disposal in optimal condition.

The biggest mistake people often make with their garbage disposal is what they put in it. Here are some items that shouldn’t go in a garbage disposal but still often do:

  1. Fruit pits
  2. Potato peels
  3. Celery
  4. Bones
  5. Egg shells
  6. Grease
  7. Coffee grounds


Make sure you don’t throw any of these items in your garbage disposal. When you do need a repair, The Village Plumber has you covered. Reach out to us about our plumbing services in the Akron, OH area.
