Sustainability Post #21 — Garbage Disposals

Filed under: Philosophy — Tags: , , — Topher @ 10:48 am

Garbage disposals waste water, energy, composting resources, and most importantly space in you septic tank, and leach field or municipal sewer system. The price for a new leach field is thousands of dollars, and require digging up a (new) section of your lawn. Garbage disposal might reduce the useful life of a leach field by half. Get a compost bucket for the kitchen instead. I have friends in the city who export their compost bucket to friends who have a compost pile (or use one of these composters.)
