No Shells in the Garbage Disposal | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Never dispose of seafood shells in your garbage disposal. It simply cannot handle them.

One of the best reasons to live in Florida is the seafood. It’s easy at all times of the year to find local, fresh seafood in the stores. But you can also enjoy catching it yourself. It’s not just grouper or other fish, it’s also shellfish. Bay scallop season, for example, opens July 1 in Hernando and Citrus counties. It opens a few weeks later in Pasco.

In fact, one of your favorite summertime activities is to go scallop diving, bring them home and have a feast with family and friends.

After you’ve finished that feast, you’re left with a bunch of shells to get rid of. You might think that’s pretty easy – just stick them in the garbage disposal and grind away.

You’d be wrong about that. Scallop or other seafood shells should never go into the garbage disposal. As says, “It just can’t handle them.”

That also goes for similar debris like bones, pits and seeds. They also should go in the trash, not the disposal. Not only are they hard to grind, but the fragments could end up causing a clog or blockage in your plumbing system.

If you’ve put any of those items in your garbage disposal with no ill effects, good. Just don’t do it again. But if you have put things in your disposal that caused a clog or other breakdown, call a reliable plumber like Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
