Food Waste Collections Reduced – InSinkErator Offers A Sustainable Solution

Reports have stated that household waste collections, and food waste collections, across the UK, including in Aberdeen, Cardiff, Manchester and Watford, have been reduced due to the current pandemic. This means that a number of homes could end up with an increased amount of unhygienic food waste mounting up in their bins, producing unwanted odours and potentially attracting pests, such as anything from flies in the warmer weather, to foxes and rats.

An InSinkErator® food waste disposer is the ideal solution to managing increased food waste and reduced bin collections, especially where home composting is not possible. With an InSinkErator® food waste disposer, households can reduce the amount of food waste lingering in their bins, by grinding leftover scraps quickly and easily in the kitchen sink, without the use of blades, and then simply flushing them away down the drain.

Anne Kaarlela, Marketing Communications Manager, Europe and Russia InSinkErator®, says: “As consumers are preparing more food at home from scratch, and the number of waste collections have been reduced, a larger proportion of inedible food waste is lingering in bins, creating odours and attracting pests.

“At InSinkErator® we aim to educate as many consumers as possible about our sustainable food waste disposers, and how they can keep their homes as clean and hygienic as possible, while effectively working towards reducing the amount of food waste in consumers’ bins.”

An InSinkErator® food waste disposer is an ideal solution for reducing food waste in the home, in addition to diverting food waste from ending up in landfill. Food waste is ground into minute-sized particles, thanks to the innovative system of stainless steel grinding rings. The food waste is then dispatched and simply rinsed away safely down the drain, through the standard plumbing.

Not only does this offer an alternative to traditional disposal methods, but by reducing food waste going to landfill sites, it also helps to decrease greenhouse gases and the household’s carbon footprint. In addition, and where there is an anaerobic digester within the sewerage system, the nutrients from the food waste can be recovered and turned into biogas and fertiliser.

As the global leader, and inventor of food waste disposers, InSinkErator® has a range of models to suit every kitchen, lifestyle and budget. The InSinkErator® food waste disposer ideal for large families, the M Series 66, has received the highly sought-after Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) Approved endorsement* following an assessment and evaluation of its performance, ease of use, design and the user instructions.

InSinkErator® has created an informative video to raise awareness of the benefits of its food waste disposers to a wider audience. The 70 second video shows viewers how easy the product is to operate and highlights the convenient benefits it offers. The video continues to detail the safety, quiet operation and easy maintenance of the food waste disposer.

InSinkErator® food waste disposers connect to standard plumbing and are designed to fit easily under all sinks and simply need an electrical connection. Each model comes with detailed installation instructions, a sink mounting assembly kit and the connection to the kitchen waste pipe. Installation videos are also available on the InSinkErator® website. Food waste disposers from InSinkErator® are ideal for retrofitting to an existing sink, as well as incorporating into a brand new kitchen design.
