Considering not installing a Garbage Disposer?
I currently have a garbage disposer attached to my kitchen sink. I will soon be upgrading the counter tops and installing a new sink.
While talking with a co worker today he mentioned that when he re did his kitchen he didnÃ¯Â¿Â½t bother installing a garbage disposal.
So I am at a crossroads, which was should I go with my upgrade?
We compost everything possible. We have a bin on the kitchen counter and we buy the compostable small bags from Costco. When bags get full we put them in the freezer in the garage and then weekly put them into the large compost bin for our weekly garbage / recycling pickup. The waste company provides three big (wheels) bins, (garbage, compost, recycling)
I just called my wife and briefly mentioned to her to think about the idea of not having a garbage disposal, her first response was that we could do without one then she mentioned getting rid of soups that she makes would be a bit more difficult, she would have to filter them. This was just a brief 30 seconds phone conversation she will think about it more.
I actually purchase a garbage disposal (I can always return it) and was planning on putting on in, now I am thinking of going without it however I can go either way.
Just wondering what the pros and cons are that I might be missing
