I would like to see less Garbage Disposals
I just don't get garbage disposals. I've had them in the past, but I do not own one now, and now that I have adjusted to living without one I can honestly say it is an appliance I'm glad to be without - here's why:
jams and breaks
eats your silverware and rings
takes up perfectly good usable space beneath the sink
expensive to install, replace, and repair
most table scraps can be composted
composting is easy
composting can stink if not done right
it's not rocket science to learn how to compost properly
Even if you do not compost, I wonder which is better for the environment, garbage can or garbage disposal. I'm not sure?
Honestly, with all the recycling and composting I'm doing, it takes a few weeks to fill my kitchen size garbage can. And I always have a supply of rich garden soil to use in my garden.
Bottom line. Unless you live in a high rise, I just don't see the point.
Tell me what you think?
