Do you have a garbage disposal?

 We've never had one because we're on a septic system but a few of our neighbors have them despite the septic. I always thought it was bad to use one.

yes I have one, and honestly don't know what I'd do without it!

My daughter is so use to throwing her food in the sink, she went over a friends house who doesn't have one and she accidentally just put her plate with the food in the sink....guess she thought everyone had one!

Yes even septic. We put very little down, I do sometimes drop a lemon or lime pieces down it.

No, I don't have one.  Kitchen scraps, except for meat, milk, eggs, etc., go into a container and end up in the compost pile.  It's surprising how quickly peelings, coffee grounds, etc. add up.

I have one and that is what I missed the most the week we were without power due to hurricane.

 Yes I have one with a septic system. Everyone I know has one on septic. Not a problem.

Yes, I have had one for 40 years and I have always been on a septic system.  The food that goes into the septic system adds the 'digestive' stuff a septic system needs to operate - just like 'poop'.  Fat is about the only thing that clogs the septic system.

good
