Can I use a garbage disposal?

Like the wipes, it is preferred if you do not use a garbage disposal because it creates issues with your septic. The food particles that get cut up do not degrade in the septic tank, so it is required to be pumped more often. They also cause more grease to go down the drain which can clog pipes, and causes issues with your soil absorption area, binding off the soil and reducing the amount of water the soil can take.
