Of course there is no rule against it; however, you do not want to put certain things in your disposal. Potato peels can clog it, for instance. Also, throwing tea bags into your disposal is a bad idea as the strings on the teabags may wrap around the unit's hardware which can affect the performance of the disposal as well as the dishwasher (if it is hooked up with the garbage disposal).

Can you put Tea bags in compost?

It is not necessarily a good idea to put tea bags directly in the compost. The tea leaves on the inside of the tea bag are fully compostable, but in general, the bags themselves may not be. Some tea companies use nylon tea bags, and even when the bags are made of paper, they can contain sealants made of plastic, which will not break down fully. Check that your tea bags are marked as 100% biodegradable before adding them to compost; otherwise, break open the tea bags, put the inside in the compost, and the tea bag itself in the trash. And consider buying loose-leaf tea: it is always 100% compostable.
