Garbage Disposals

Garbage disposals are simple to use and make the food clean-up process quick and easy. A garbage disposal shreds your food scraps into small fragments that can be transported through the sewer system to a wastewater treatment rather than a landfill. This makes it an environmentally safe option as it helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Garbage disposals endure plenty in our household, as everything is dumped in them from food to glass, to even silverware. It is important avoid placing foreign objects in them to ensure a longer lifetime.

Here are some helpful garbage disposal tips:

  • run it regularly to prevent rust;
  • toss in a few ice cubes to keep it clean;
  • occasionally grind an orange or lemon rind to freshen the smell;
  • run hot water after disposal is finished to push water out of sewer line.

If the garbage disposal in your kitchen in Hollister, Tres Pinos, San Juan Bautista, Gilroy, Watsonville or Salinas is giving you trouble, Central Valley Plumbing (CVP) can help you figure out if it’s broken or jammed, and facilitate the fixing or replacement process.
