I live in a typical apartment building, with a fairly ordinary sink and garbage disposal. “In sink erator” brand. I tend not to use it at all.
Today, I was peeling an orange, and got to wondering. What volume of garbage are disposals intended to handle? The peel from one orange? The peels from one banana? The rind of one canteloupe? The rind of one watermelon?
I dig that peach pits are right out: they can’t be ground up into pulp. But…how much pulpable garbage is reasonable?
