Garbage Disposal Services

Garbage Disposal Services in Northborough, MA

Garbage disposals are handy pieces of home equipment. They allow you to rinse dishes and prepare food over the sink with no need to worry about scraps getting stuck and clogging your drain. When they work as intended, garbage disposals speed up both cooking and cleanup times significantly, but like all household appliances, garbage disposals do break down occasionally.

If you’ve been noticing slow-draining water, unusual sounds, or unpleasant odors coming from your garbage disposal or, even worse, a visible leak beneath the sink, give Sharp Plumbing & Heating a call. Our team of expert plumbers has extensive experience working on garbage disposals, so we’ll get yours back up and running in no time.

Garbage Disposal Repair

Garbage disposals often sustain damage as a result of foreign objects like silverware or bottle caps being introduced into them by mistake. Certain types of bones, skins, pits and exceptionally stringy vegetables can also leave your garbage disposal in a state of disrepair. Over the years, the effects of general wear and tear can also add up, leaving you in need of garbage disposal repair even if your family has always been careful about what goes down the drain.

Signs I Need to Repair the Garbage Disposal

If you’re not sure whether it’s worth calling to schedule a garbage disposal repair appointment, don’t hesitate to give us a call. You should take action immediately if you notice any of these signs you need to repair the garbage disposal:

  • Standing water
  • Slow-moving drains
  • Lingering odors
  • Leaking water
  • Repeated clogs
  • Constant resets
  • Unusual sounds
  • Poor performance


If you give us a call when these issues start to arise, you may be able to avoid a total system failure. You may be able to avoid the need for a more substantial kitchen sink repair. Of course, if your garbage disposal just won’t turn on, at all, we’re still here to help.

Garbage Disposal Replacement

Here at Sharp Plumbing & Heating, we’re committed to providing you with the services you need to keep your home’s essential systems up and running without breaking your budget. We’ll be happy to discuss the full range of options for addressing any kind of issue, and those options often include both repairs and replacement. In a surprising number of cases, it’s more cost-effective to choose the latter.

How Do I Know When It's Time to Replace My Garbage Disposal?

The problem with older household appliances and pieces of equipment is that they rarely work as well after 10 years of use as it did the day it was installed. This is as true of garbage disposals as any other appliance. Over time, occasional breakdowns and general wear and tear start to have a cumulative effect that’s hard to ignore.

In most cases, we can continue to fix your garbage disposal almost indefinitely. Eventually, though, you’ll run up upon an exceptionally expensive repair, such as a cracked casing, or your unit will start to experience cascading failures. While one repair to your garbage disposal generally costs much less than replacing it entirely, the cost of frequent repairs adds up fast.

It can be hard to tell when it’s time to replace an old garbage disposal, especially if you’re working with a tight budget. We usually recommend replacing units that are more than 10 years old, experiencing frequent breakdowns, or seeing decreases in energy efficiency that cause your utility bills to rise. When in doubt, ask for a professional opinion. We’ll be happy to discuss the pros and cons of both repairs and garbage disposal replacement.

Garbage Disposal Installation

Not all of our clients looking into new garbage disposals are replacing existing models. Some older homes still do not have these vital pieces of equipment, to begin with. If that’s the case in your home, you should know that we also offer first-time garbage disposal installation services. We can help you choose the right model to suit your family’s needs and then learn how to use it appropriately to keep the unit in a state of good repair.
