How Often Do You Need to Replace a Garbage Disposal?
Garbage disposals are designed to last for many years, but their lifespan can vary depending on factors such as usage and maintenance. On average, garbage disposals can last anywhere from 8 to 15 years. Regular maintenance and proper usage can help prolong the lifespan of your garbage disposal and prevent the need for premature replacement.
Here are a few tips for maintaining your garbage disposal:
- Run cold water before, during, and after using your disposal
- Avoid using harsh chemical cleaners
- Clean your disposal with ice cubes, rock salt, and cold water
- Use citrus peels to naturally clean and freshen your garbage disposal

14 Things to Stop Putting Down Your Garbage Disposal
Many people make the mistake of treating their garbage disposal like actual trashcans. While the name “garbage disposal” might imply that it can handle any garbage, that isn’t the case. There are a number of items and types of food waste that can wreak serious havoc on your pipes and cause blockages and clogs that can contribute to plumbing emergencies over time. We recommend being mindful about what you put down your garbage disposal to avoid unnecessary plumbing problems.
Below are 14 things you should never put in your garbage disposal:
- Fruit pits
- Grease, oil, and fat
- Starchy vegetables (i.e., celery and asparagus)
- Coffee grounds
- Harsh drain cleaners
- Potato peels
- Onion skins
- Non-food items (i.e., plastic, produce stickers, or glass)
- Shells from seafood
- Nuts and seeds
