The garbage disposal is one of the most useful appliances that you can have in your kitchen. It helps get rid of food waste, and generally improves the flow of cooking.

We offer garbage disposal services throughout Chapel Hill.


Installing a garbage disposal is something that should only be done by a professional. As with any project that requires interacting with your home’s electrical system, installing a garbage disposal could result in severe or fatal injuries if you don’t know what you’re doing. No need to worry though. Our technicians have many years of professional training and experience. We’ll make sure that your garbage disposal installation goes as smoothly and safely as possible. With our high-quality garbage disposal installation service, your garbage disposal can have the perfect start to its years of serving you.


If you want to keep your garbage disposal in the best possible condition, there are a few steps you can take. Mainly, you’re going to want to avoid putting certain materials into the disposal. For example:

  • Ice: There are a couple of misconceptions floating around among homeowners that putting ice in the garbage disposal will help clean it. This isn’t true. What it will actually do is break the impellers in the disposal, which will have to be replaced.
  • Bones/Fruit Pits: This is one of the more surefire ways to destroy your disposal. These materials are far too hard for your system to deal with and should be composted or thrown away instead of put down the disposal.
  • Fibrous Veggies: This one is somewhat surprising to a lot of folks. Things like celery, onion skins, potato skins, and the like are very fibrous. When put into the garbage disposal, those fibers can tangle the impeller and cause the disposal motor to burn out. It’s best to avoid exposing the disposal to these materials.


If you do happen to have a problem with your garbage disposal, it’s best to call for repairs as soon as possible. The faster we can get to your disposal, the more damage we can prevent. We offer a full range of garbage disposal repair services throughout Chapel Hill, NC.

You should also have your garbage disposal professionally checked every year or so. This allows us to monitor for any developing problems and solve them before they become more serious. Annual maintenance will also let us determine when your disposal is reaching the end of its life and if it needs replacement. Call Bud Matthews Services today to schedule an appointment.
