Unless you have a garbage disposal, avoid putting vegetable and fruit peels, cereal, eggshells, and coffee grounds down the kitchen sink. Not only do these scraps take a lot of water to rinse down, but water reacts with many foods like pasta, rice, and bread, which expand, and potato skins can release starch, forming a glue-like clog inside the drain, often too far down in the system to easily clear. Better to dump kitchen scraps in the compost pile.
