The holidays are the perfect time to remind everyone to treat your garbage disposal with care. Your garbage disposal is a workhorse. It is a great invention that is convenient and saves on waste that would normally end up in landfills. It still is a machine that needs to be treated with care. There are certain items that are best to be thrown away or composted rather than put down the disposal. These include: corn husks, pits, fibrous vegetables, egg shells, onion skins, nuts, bones, oatmeal, pasta, coffee grounds, and over the counter harsh drain cleaners. If you are in need of a new garbage disposal or a repair, contact Putman & Son’s Plumbing 24/7 emergency hotline. We are here to help!
