It’s very simple to accidentally knock a wedding ring, nickel, or other small metal object down a sink drain or into the garbage disposal.

The most prudent thing to do is call the plumbers and have them come out on fix it. Many people, however, prefer to try to retrieve the item themselves.

If you are going to attempt to retrieve anything out of the garbage disposal, please follow these tips:

  1. Head to the circuit breaker and cut off the power to the disposal.
  2. Grab a flashlight, extra long needle nose pliers (or tweezers) and safety gloves.
  3. Have a partner shine the flashlight into the disposal and see if you can see the object.
  4. Use the extra long pliers to grab the item and pull it out.

Do not stick your hand into the garbage disposal without safety gloves on, as the blades are very sharp.

If you can’t see the object in the disposal, please call professional plumbers. Garbage disposals can be very tricky to disassemble and reassemble.

The last thing you want to do is to take the disposal apart and not be able to put it back together. A professional plumber will be able to take apart the disposal, retrieve the object and put it back together without too much trouble.
