Garbage Disposals are used in many households, but are they safe to use with your septic system. Good Question!
While many companies that sell garbage disposals will tell you they are fine to use with a septic system, the truth is they really aren’t.
You really shouldn’t be using a garbage disposal with your septic system. The way that the septic system is set up involves a large tank filled with water and the waste from your home. The solid waste settles to the bottom where bacteria go to work breaking it down. Then, there is the water waste layer that has the excess liquid going out to the drain field. Finally, at the top, there is a layer of scum that has built up.
In order to keep your septic system running smoothly, there are many items that should not be flushed or sent down the drains. This includes, diapers, wipes, bleach, harsh chemicals and sanitary products to name a few. The same is true with your garbage disposal. All the fats, grease, and other waste from the disposal are being added to the septic tank which can can cause problems and clogs and prevent it from working correctly.
Basically, you are overloading the waste that is being put into your septic tank and the naturally occurring bacteria will not be able to keep up with breaking it down. If you use a garbage disposal, you should have your tank pumped every year, rather than the normal 3-5 year range. It can wreak havoc with your septic system.
A better idea? Compost. Composting your kitchen waste is much better for your system and environmentally friendly. You can buy a cheap plastic composter or even make your own. Depending on the size, you can add all your kitchen waste as well as leaves and grass and have a great fertilizer ready for your garden or landscaping.
It’s a win win situation for your yard as well as your septic system.

What makes a septic system work properly? Billions of naturally occurring microscopic bacteria and enzymes are responsible for a major part of the three-stage treatment that processes wastewater in a septic system.
The wastewater in the septic tank begins the process of decomposition by separating into layers. Bacteria, which is naturally present in all septic systems, will begin to digest the solids which have settled to the bottom of the tank. These naturally occurring bacteria will change up to 50% of these solids into liquids and gases.
There are all kinds of additives on the market advertised to improve the biological environment of your septic system, but most experts agree that they are not needed. The best plan is to keep high doses of cleaners and bleaches out of your septic system which can kill off the beneficial bacteria.
Another important part of the process occurs in the drainfield. The effluent, or wastewater from the septic tank enters the drain or leachfield and comes into contact with the biomat. There are organisms living in the biomat which further digest the organic matter in the effluent and from there it reaches the soil where the last part of the process occurs. Bacteria in the soil further treat the waste. It is important that the drainfield not be flooded. Many of these bacteria found in the soil and biomat are aerobic or oxygen dependent. If water floods a drainfield, they may die off and will not be replenished until the flooding is relieved.
