  • Can you put meat in a garbage disposal?

Yes, all forms of meat, fish, dairy, egg shells, veg and pasta. Rather, slowly put scraps into the disposal and allow it to grind the waste completely before turning it off. That helps it break waste into smaller particles, which are more easily handled by waste treatment systems. Always use cold water and make sure to let the water run for several seconds after grinding is done to flush waste. Never pour oils or grease down the disposer, which could cause clogs in pipes and sewer lines.
