What do you put down the garbage disposal?

I agree. When I redid my kitchen some years back I did not install one and just composted everything. But now I am in condo which has one which I do use a lot. No where to compost here. I use it mostly for leftover salad and pre salad making when I trim the veggies. If it can't go in the disposal then I bag it up in plastic bag and put out in the trasn. I am not sure about the avacado skins so I jusr put them in the plastic bag along with the seed. I have on occassion put pieces of lemons, limes, etc in it as it give a nice smell. But I cut them up into quarters.

Not a review but a question.
There are many different kinds of pickles. ex: Dill, Sweet, Bread & Butter, Kosher.

I would NEVER do that. The only place for the skins is in my stomach. That is the best part and only part of a potato that I eat.

Baked Chicken Breast

When I prepared this dish it was in a smaller quantity. I used only 2 pcs (2 halves) of chicken breasts which can serve 2-3 people depending on their appetite. I cut most ingredients in half except the bread crumbs which I used 3/4 cup. Before putting into over I put pine nuts over the top. Baked in my countertop convection oven at 400 for 35 min. If they would have browned quicker I think maybe 25-30 minutes would have sufficed.
I am thinking that next time I will try a different flavor cheese and possibly use some of my basil from my garden.

6 Summer Craft Brews to Sip from the Can

Sorry but I like my beer in glass bottles. I have never liked anything out of a can as it always has a hint of metal to the taste.

What do you put down the garbage disposal?

Thanks for the input. I tried a lime cut in half since I love the aroma but it didn't do anything so I am avoiding citrus from now on. I am one of many people who have purchased a property that already has a disposal. So no care and use booklet and that is why I have asked certain questions.

As we used to tell all our customers when they called in with disposals that were clogged to take a broom stick handle and push in down into the disposal to see if it would dislodge whatever it was before paying for one of our techs to come to their home.

I called and they had them last year but the company bought them all back.and they are no longer available. Must have been a problem with them.
Since my cans are in my garage I need something to contain the smell especially in temps over 100 degrees.

Sorry but plastic is all that is sold for the cans. Wish there were more choices but then again how strong is paper? Its hard enough trying to find plastic bags that will not fall apart between my kitchen and garage. Also I think that pape would not contain the smell and I would not like my garage to start smelling bad.
Wish there was a better way but I guess I will just stick to what I am doing and using the plastic but trying to avoid a lot of this by using disposal for anything that I can.

Can't do that as it is required to be in a closed up plastic garbage bag.

Don't have any of that to worry about as home came with the disposal. Just want to keep it working as good as it has been without any problems. Made a noise first few times I used it and I discovered there was a stone about the size of a quarter in it which I removed. Also know the broom stick handle trick if it ever clogs up as I used to sell warranties on appliances.

Composting is not an option for me where I live.

A little more work doesn't bother me. But filling up the landfills does. I believe in recycling and ulsing my disposal is just part of that.

I want to put everything I can into it instead of filling up the landfills. Every little bit helps.

Garbage disposal uses

I have been reading up on garbage disposals and can not find an answer. I want to know if I can use it for corn husks and corn cobs (if broken into several sections)?
Also avacado skins? I have been putting them down and it seems OK.
Onion skins?

What do you put down the garbage disposal?

If you don't put food in a disposal then what do you use it for? It is meant for food items.
