Why Have A Disposer
There's a place for kitchen garbage, and it's not underneath your sink or beside your countertop. In fact, no matter where you keep a garbage can, getting rid of food waste can be a messy, smelly chore. Bagged garbage can also attract animals and insects, and create unsanitary conditions around your home. With an InSinkErator disposal in your kitchen, chicken bones, fruit rinds, coffee grounds and more can go right down the drain and into the garbage disposal -- where they're virtually liquefied to safely flow into your sewage system or septic tank. You'll enjoy a cleaner food preparation area, less cans and bags cluttering your home, and fewer trips carrying garbage to the curb.
By putting an InSinkErator disposer in your kitchen, you're doing your part to help reduce a growing problem. That's because when food waste is dumped in landfills, bacteria and other harmful organisms can seep into the ground and contaminate our water. With an InSinkErator disposer, food waste is ground into fine particles and safely flushed into your sewage system. Decades of scientific studies have shown this to be a sound ecological alternative. At wastewater treatment facilities, the food waste can be converted into useful energy, or recycled into agricultural fertilizer.
