How Long Will My Garbage Disposal Last?

On average, it should last you a good number of years before the blades will wear down or the motor will burn out. Depending on when you installed it, you can expect your it to last anywhere from 8 – 15 years. Of course, this depends on how frequently you use it and if you use it properly.


What do we mean by use it properly? We all know there are certain things that shouldn’t go down the garbage disposal. Garbage disposals are only meant for biodegradable food—you should never put anything down there like bones, plastic, or metal (such as silverware).

But even certain foods shouldn’t—ideally—be allowed to pass through the disposal, including:

  • Grease and oil, which can solidify in the drain and cause clogs
  • Stringy vegetables (like celery), which can get caught on the blades and cause clogs
  • Rice or pasta, which expand when wet
  • Fruit pits or any other hard food that can damage the blades


Do I Need Removal?

If you’re garbage disposal is between 8 and 15 years old and it’s experiencing any of the following problems, it’s possible that you need garbage disposal removal: Your garbage disposal won’t run, runs slowly, operates noisily, is clogged or jammed, is leaking, makes a humming noise or doesn’t make any noise at all.
