Annual disposal vs. turkey day


I am just wondering if anyone has an estimate of the amount of turkey bones, green beans, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoe casserole, and pumpkin pie can be put into a garbage disposal without stopping up my drain line.



Just kidding. Happy Thanksgiving

For the turkey bones it depends on how rapidly you put bones into the disposer and how fast water was run from the faucet into the disposer while the disposer was running..

The other materials named should not be put down a disposer; that would be sinfully wasteful.

If you filter in vinegar and baking soda with it you can put through as much as you want.
