Garbage Disposal Use

The Upper Uwchlan Township Municipal Authority reminds residents to limit what is placed in garbage disposals, as well as its overall use. Please refrain from placing fatty foods, meat scraps, bones, etc. into garbage disposals as that increases the organic loading on the sanitary sewer facilities and the associated treatment costs. Fat, oils, or grease should never be placed in the sanitary sewer system as it can cause clogs, sewer backups and increases in maintenance costs. Human waste, toilet paper and water should be the only thing going down sanitary sewers. Thank you for your assistance.
