comment Why does my garbage disposal have a 3 way switch?
@bib the green screw is ground. The two black screws are for the switched circuit. The "back stab" connections on the back of the switch are connected to the screw terminals. Using the screw terminal and the backstab connector avoids the use of a separate pigtail to join the two wires together.

Another reason to shed water is that any small pools of water will attract dirt, leaving a stain as it dries out.
