A master plumber friend of mine told me the best thing you can do for your garbage disposal was to not use it.

IF you are home and bring your empty barrel back into the garage within 2 hours of the actual trash pickup, THEN you may put your barrel out that morning or the night before.

IF you need to leave the house, and the trash hasn't come yet, you MUST take the bags out of the barrel, put them on the curb, and return the barrel back into the garage.

I know - sometimes logic is hard.
That would never work. Yes, I applied logic. A rule that tells you to do something, and then change what you did to something else the next morning - nope.
