Re: Disposal with a septic system
Septic tanks are designed to process organic waste, but not the amount of that waste generated through regular use of a garbage disposal. In general, garbage disposal units should not be used with a septic system. The problems and cost of frequent cleanings caused by use of a garbage disposal with a septic system are not worth the small convenience offered by a disposal. That being said, the use of a dishwasher almost requires a garbage disposal but it does not mean you need to use it for all the garbage you create.
