Grind Up Unwanted Pumpkin Scraps this Halloween with an InSinkErator Food Waste Disposer

With winter nights drawing in and an eerie chill in the air, ghosts, witches and vampires will soon swarm upon your neighbourhood, spooking anyone that crosses their path. Luckily they have not risen from the dead but are, in fact, groups of children happily trick-or-treating, celebrating the annual spook-tastic Halloween holiday.

Introduced in America by Irish immigrants, the tradition of carving a pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern was first introduced to frighten away evil spirits1. Once the pumpkin seeds and pith have been removed, traditionally the pumpkin is carved into a spooky face with a single candle flickering inside, protecting homes from unwanted evil spirits.

Pumpkin carving is a messy task that unfortunately leaves household bins overflowing; composting our food is not only a highly effective method of protecting the environment but also helps to replenish it. Nor does the process require the clutter and unpleasantness of a smelly bin in the kitchen or outside.

However for those unable to compost there is a simple and alternative solution, which also saves the hassle involved with pedal bins and dustbins. InSinkErator®, the inventor and global market leader of food waste disposers and major player in the steaming hot water tap market, offers a quick and simple solution to getting rid of unwanted pumpkin scraps and reducing food waste this Halloween with their new M Series range of food waste disposers.

A food waste disposer allows food waste to be dealt with hygienically, efficiently and quickly, while reducing odours and bacteria in the kitchen by eliminating the need for an organic waste bin. InSinkErator® food waste disposers are equipped with top quality stainless steel grinding elements, to simply grind food waste into tiny particles, without the use of blades, and flush them away down the drain. There, it can be transported to a waste water treatment centre and converted into soil conditioner or biogas for use as a renewable power source.

The new M Series range offers three affordable disposers, which utilise the same technology, quality parts and American craftsmanship of the brand’s top-of-the-range model. Each M Series model is compact enough to fit under the kitchen sink without taking up valuable storage space, with improved performance and Quick Lock® mounting assembly for faster, easier installation.

Linda Phoutthasak, Marketing Manager, Europe and Russia, for InSinkErator®, says: “Enjoy pumpkin carving this Halloween without worrying about disposing of the extra mess created. A food waste disposer is ideal for organic waste management in the modern home. Dispose of leftovers and peelings instantly and safely without the use of blades; saving space, time, energy and the unpleasant task of sorting through rubbish. The new and improved M Series affords this convenience to more homeowners than ever before, all at an affordable price and with the confidence that comes from a world class brand.”
