It's important to prevent unnecessary debris from going down the drain. Prevent clogs from occurring. Help the people treating all of our wastewater, every little bit helps.
Kitchen Sinks: disposals are only meant for clearing the line NOT for using to grind up and dispose of food scraps. STOP putting stuff down the drain. Put it in the right disposal location: yard compost bin, yard/garden, municipal green bin, and lastly trash going to the landfill.
“Either you can walk 1-10 feet to throw it away in the trash or you can put it down the drain and pay us to throw it away for you. It goes to the same landfill, only now it’s contaminated by human waste.”
