InSinkErator Food Waste Disposers Are The Answer To The Growing Problem Of Food Waste

InSinkErator®, the global leader and inventor of food waste disposers and major player in the steaming hot water taps market, offers the answer to the growing problem of food waste with an environmentally-responsible solution.

Seven million tonnes of food and drink are wasted every year in the UK, according to WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme), which is resulting in a huge strain on landfill sites. An InSinkErator® food waste disposer is a modern kitchen appliance offering an easy and practical alternative to managing food waste. It is installed under the kitchen sink and connected to the normal sink drain. Within seconds the disposer grinds food waste into minute particles, which are flushed into the sewage system.

Food waste disposers, such as the InSinkErator® Evolution 200, have always played an important role in responsible food waste management. They divert organic waste from landfill where it would create methane gas emissions and leachate. Food waste that is sent to a wastewater treatment plant can be converted to fertiliser or renewable energy, helping to reduce the planet’s carbon footprint.

If a community of 30,000* people switched from landfilling food scraps to sending most of it to the local wastewater treatment plant via a disposer, it would be equivalent to:

  • Planting 13,700 trees
  • Enough electricity to power 25 homes for a year
  • Saving an average car 4.6 million miles

Ashley Munden, Managing Director, Europe, for InSinkErator®, says: “Food waste disposers provide a clean, convenient and environmentally-responsible method of ridding the kitchen of food scraps. At the touch of a button, food waste is dealt with instantly and hygienically, rather than leaving it in a bin to encourage smells, bacteria and insects. Above all, it reduces the amount of food going to landfill and affords us the opportunity to produce renewable energy from waste.”
