Yes, you can. Just make sure to have the faucet on whenever you put something down the garbage disposal. Never put bones down the garbage disposal.

Throw them in the garbage as simple as that!

RE-Use RE-Duce RE-Cycle Recycle Fruit and Vegetable peels.

You can, but the two ends don't always grind up very well. And stringey things like banana peels and celery will tend to cause it to seize up. I would recommend using them in your garden for compost. They are supposed to be really good for tomato and rose plants. It has been not recommended, but I myself have cut 'em up and experimented with it, and it seems to work just find. I do know that egg shells and ice, either by themselves or together, sharpen the blades of a garbage disposal quite well, and it helps to do it daily depending on how much you use the garbage disposal.


watermelon rinds, orange peels, carrot shavings, tea leaves, apple cores, banana peels and vegetables.

To deodorize a garbage disposal you can either put some baking soda in the drain and let it sit for a while or my favorite is to run lemon peels through the disposal after you do the dishes every night. You can use orange peels, too. Just make sure the pieces are small enough to run through without clogging it.

I don't put bones in the disposal. That's not to say it can't be done, I just don't do it.The ONLY thing I've had trouble with is banana peels.Their fibrous nature plugs up the "P" trap.Apple cores --- OKEntire apples, when rotten -- cut -up so they fit and OKOrange Peels -- OKEgg shells -- OK

you could make slippers out of banana peels.

Here is advice and input: * Putting orange and lemon peels down the garbage disposal makes the drain, sink, and entire kitchen smell fresh and clean. No one likes a smelly drain, and recycling these peels as air freshener can make your entire kitchen smell citrus fresh. Older citrus fruits that may be going partially bad, can still be cut up and put into the garbage disposal. If you don't have a disposal, orange and lemon juice with warm running water can keep your drains smelling fresh.. * If your garbage disposal is stong enough, its a very good idea to put orange or lemon peels down it to make it smell good. * Putting orange peels down a disposal is a GREAT idea. It rids the disposal of the disgusting smell. I wish I would have tried it sooner! * Alternatively, pour a half cup of baking soda into the drain, and then pour some white vinegar on top of it. This will foam, cleaning the area and making it smell fresh. Why waste the orange peels? Keep them and dry them out. If you have a fireplace and are going to have a fire one night throw some dried orange peels in. It makes your home smell nice! Also, you can use the dried orange peels and put them in netting and hang a little in closets, drawers, or in your bathroom.

Uh huh, Yup ,Certainly , Sure can, yes with out any doubt,

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).

Not a good idea as they tend to stick between the rotating disc and the casing, causing blockages that are hard to remove.

Can't safely answer but, don't put potato peels, chicken skin or bones, large amounts of mashed potatoes

- YES, you can put potato peelings in garburator. However, add them slowly and allow them to process so you do not clog the appliance.

your sa beautifulYes. But banana peels have very small amount of fiber and it is not economical to make paper from banana peels.

Fruits and veggies banana peels orange peels

Yes, and as with other citrus fruits, they help the disposal smell fresher. No, just broke the disposal by doing so. The repairman said not to put any fruit peels down the disposal. I suppose it might differ depending on the quality of the disposal, but you can take your chances and pay the repair bill if you like.

Yes, bananas are treated with pesticides, and their skin should not be eaten.

No, banana peels have small strands of banana on them that taste bitter. The rabbit will have a stomach ache and might have diarrhea. Try eating a strand and see what you think!

No they can be used for compost
