Over 80 years ago InSinkErator invented the world’s first food waste disposer. An InSinkErator food waste disposer sits neatly under the sink and is both a convenient and responsible choice for the modern home. It diverts food waste from landfill and is a great alternative to food composting.
Leftovers from food preparation or meals are safely ground down into minute sized particles that simply rinse safely away down the drain through standard plumbing. The action is performed by an innovative system of stainless-steel grinding rings, meaning there are no blades for total safety and peace of mind.
InSinkErator food waste disposers are self-cleaning and made to last from premium materials. The food waste disposer will sit neatly under your sink, providing the benefits of saving space and improving cleanliness in the kitchen.
In an attempt to boost recycling and environmental protection, the UK government has announced that from 2023 every household will have separate food waste collections. Food waste will therefore have to be collected in a food waste caddy.
Installing an InSinkErator food waste disposer ensures food can be disposed of immediately. This removes the need to collect unhygienic and smelly waste in a food caddy, where home composting is not possible.
Prevention of food waste is more important than ever, but there will always be unavoidable waste from food preparation or leftovers. As a result, food waste typically ends up in landfill where it contributes to the release of harmful methane into the environment. With a food waste disposer, instead of going to landfill, the food waste can yield valuable biogas and other vital soil nutrients that can be recovered at the wastewater plant.
