Waste disposal units
Waste disposal units are perfect if you want a cleaner, greener kitchen. Eliminate those awful odours the bin normally creates and be environmentally friendly, reducing landfill waste by flushing it into the sewers.
How it works…
Run water and put your food down the disposer. Once the waste disposer unit has processed the food waste, the food waste goes into the sewer and the waste is then directed to a local sewage treatment plant. The sewage treatment plant breaks down the food waste with bacteria and this is therefore deemed a natural decomposition of the organic material.
Depending on the sewage plant will determine where the material then goes. Some sewage plants release the biodegradable material into the ocean, some redirect as compost and some use the material to create bio gas for electricity.
