InSinkErator Highlights Benefits of Food Waste Disposers in time for European Week for Waste Reduction

The global leader and inventor of the food waste disposer, InSinkErator®, is an active campaigner in encouraging the sustainable disposal of food waste, and wholly supports the aims and objectives of the European Week for Waste Reduction initiative, which takes place from 19th to 27th November 2016.

The initiative aims to raise awareness of waste management solutions across Europe, encouraging both private enterprises and the general public to get involved. Addressing the issue of increased waste across Europe is important for InSinkErator®, who looks to advise as many homeowners as possible about an alternative and sustainable solution.

The UK leads the world in many areas, but currently food waste disposers are only used in about six per cent of UK homes, while around 80 per cent of new homes in the US are fitted with one1. InSinkErator® has a range of models to suit every kitchen, family and lifestyle. InSinkErator® food waste disposers are equipped with an innovative system of grind rings, to safely grind food waste into tiny particles, without the use of knives or blades, before it is simply rinsed away down the standard plumbing.

With an InSinkErator® food waste disposer, food scraps, once ground, can be transported to a wastewater treatment plant and made into biogas or fertiliser. By disposing of food waste in this way, the strain on landfill sites and damage to the ozone layer is eased.

Denise Iordache, Marketing Manager, Europe and Russia, InSinkErator®, says: “As active campaigners for sustainable food waste solutions, we wholeheartedly applaud events and initiatives that help raise awareness on the scale of the issue. An InSinkErator® food waste disposer is an invaluable asset for disposing of food waste in a hygienic and sustainable way, allowing more homes than ever before to reduce the amount of food waste sent to landfill.”
