We compost all of our table scraps. A few sneak down the drain and clog it. We just flip the switch on the garbage disposal and the drain unclogs. Unless the disposal dies. Like it did over a week ago. Now it doesn’t drain and I have to take unpleasant measures to remedy the situation.
After the last plumber gouged us, we never use the disposal to send ground food into the water cycle. On her last visit, my mother-in-law was kind enough to ask, seconds before shoving a handful of broccoli stems down the drain and flipping the switch: “Is it okay to put these down here?”
“Ya got $300?”
