I’m concerned about the environmental impact of garbage disposers. So instead of putting the plate waste into the garbage disposal I compost any plant based leftovers. I even add in outdated herbs and spices into our composter. I keep big yogurt tubs by the sink, and scrape the plates there -then transfer the scraps to the composter every few days.
Facts about Garbage Disposals.
Whether you have a garbage disposal or not, avoid putting grease down your sink to help prevent sewage spills and stay earth friendly. Consider starting a composter in place of putting plant-based foods down the garbage disposer. It’s a great way to re-use and recycle.
