Does using a garbage disposal unit impact my septic system?

Yes. Using an in-sink garbage disposal unit can impact how often you need to pump your septic tank. Food waste usually is slowly digested by the healthy bacteria in your septic tank and can accumulate as scum and sludge. If you must use a garbage disposal unit, your tank will need to be pumped more frequently.
