What do you put down the garbage disposal?

I know this isn't really a food question, but I know I will get responses from people that cook frequently. Everytime my mother in law visits she "messes" with my kitchen - burning up pans, teapots, breaking bowls. It's unbelievable. She also puts some things down the garbage disposal I would put in the trash. Today she put down a whole banana peel with the woody stem. I saw it down there and was able to pull it out before I turned it on. She thought I was being ridiculous and just anal about the kitchen. It turned into a big discussion over dinner. Thought I would get opinions from fellow chowhounders! Tell me I'm not crazy!!!
