The installation of an InSinkErator Food Waste Disposal system is the perfect complement to a modern kitchen and the busy Australian lifestyle. Food scraps are conveniently and hygienically deposited down the sink eliminating the need for food waste bins and the unpleasant odours they omit. The kitchen has become the entertaining hub of our homes and therefore a way of disposing of food waste quickly and easily and eliminating nasty food smells represents the ideal kitchen solution.
InSinkErators are a true evolution in how we dispose of food waste. They are now extremely quiet, grind food without the use of blades, therefore safe and eliminate food leftovers in an environmentally responsible way. An average Australian household sends almost 1,000kg of food waste to landfill annually, and it accounts for over 30% of all household waste.
Organic food waste when dumped into landfill is a known contributor to the production of harmful greenhouse gas—specifically Methane which is known to be 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Using an InSinkErator Food Waste Disposer allows food waste to be recycled through the sewerage system, via a waste water plant, where in many instances the Methane gas generated can be converted into usable energy. This all means a win for the environment and a step forward for the modern Australian kitchen..
