Re: Garbage Diposals & Dishwashers

What I hear from our POTW is that household or restaurant/institution garbage 
disposals are NOT good.  As others have mentioned, composting food waste and 
recycling other materials (such as paper, etc.) is preferred.  Material which 
goes through a garbage disposal has potential to cause build up and plug sewer 
lines; cause blockages at pump stations; and encourage rodent populations to 
homestead and cause nuisance in certain portions of lines.
