Garbage Disposals and High Rise Condominiums
Posted on Jan 25th, 2018
Garbage disposals were installed in all units of our condo; but using them is a really bad idea. With a long vertical discharge route and horizontal connections from each condo unit, there are many opportunities for waste to adhere to the sides, plug the outlet and back up into the condos. And, it happens. Grease, oil, fat, and fibrous material like celery, onion skin, potato peels and artichokes are the worst.
Please scrape all waste from plates and put it in the trash and minimize what does enter the disposal.
