    I sometimes get confused on what and when to use disposal.

    I minimize food waste as much as possible, but wonder when to use the disposal and when to trash.

    Can fans be recycled?

    I laughed at the part where they compared food waster to wasted quarter-pounders. One of the sad facts of the fast-food industries, all of them, is that they are REQUIRED to waste a certain amount an hour. They must make 'x' amount of hamburger patties per [time frame]. Never mind if they don't sell that many. A company official snoops around to make sure the standards are getting met. Conversely, the finished products are only allowed to sit around for (I think, one of my friends worked for fast-food, I didn't) 20 minutes. Waste? What waste? That's company standards, keeping the food fresh, not waste... We need to cut down on those statistics, too! Just think: [Fill in your favorite fast-food hamburger joint] could send 'x' basic hamburgers to the local charity food place [that serves 1-3 meals a day] and write it off as a charitable contribution--and cut way down on the waste problem at the same time.

    I live alone and like to cook but don't like to waste. I freeze my leftovers in individual meal portions so I can pull out for quick meals. I have a double compost bin in my yard for unusable fruit and vegetable scraps. I return the composted soil to my garden. It takes a lot of scraps and leaves to make a bucket of dirt.
