Edit: I should clarify: I don't have a garbage disposal, but it's on my list of will-haves when I get around to it. Fuck the septic tank.
My parents built their house around '94 and is on septic and have had a garbage disposal since the house was built and have never had it pumped.
I've cleaned their main sewer line once and it was grease/food/that gel stuff caught up with hair and some string.
