Use your garbage disposal! It is more earth friendly then allowing the waste to sit in a plastic garbage bag, where it will decompose more slowly. When using a garbage disposal you are allowing organic waste to be sent into the sewer lines, where it will be digested back into nature. Organic waste is turned into fertilizer, after being treated by your community’s sanitary district.

The greenest option is to compost left over food and waste! For those of you with your own septic this might be a good idea, seeing that there are some that say garbage disposal waste can cause back-ups. Frankly, I’ve never had this problem and we have always had our own septic.
