What Fruit can do to Your Garbage Disposal

Home » Blog » What Fruit can do to Your Garbage Disposal

Most people assume it is OK to put banana peels, orange rinds, apple peels and other fruit trimmings down the garbage disposals. Lemon rinds are a real favorite for the garbage disposal because they make it smell good. However, if you’ve been putting lots of fruit peels and skins into your disposal you may have damaged it. This type of garbage dulls the blades on your disposal. They also build up residue in the disposal. If you’ve been feeding your disposal a diet of fruit this summer call us at Summers & Zim’s (610-593-5129) and we’ll come to an inspection of the disposal and do any necessary repairs to keep it in great working condition.
