Disposers V. Bins
Food waste accounts for up to 20% of your household rubbish. But storing food waste poses many health problems and, frankly, is undesirable. To have to store a bin full of scraps and wet waste for 2 weeks before it is collected, especially in warm weather, is hazardous and unpleasant.
The collection and transportation of waste including food waste costs the Taxpayer £1.6 billion per annum Once at the landfill site the decomposition can create methane gas as it decomposes which is affecting the ozone layer. It also produces an acid that can contaminate the soil and groundwater. Incinerators, once constructed on Greenfield sites, will increase heavy traffic through local communities.
A disposer in your kitchen means less waste for collection, less pollution, fewer lorries, less emissions. A disposer complements other 'green' activities such as composting. Food waste that cannot be composted such as dairy products, eggs, pasta, rice and bones can be disposed of safely.
The waste is ground to a pulp which mixes with waste water and goes from the disposer to the treatment plant where aeration and other methods are used to produce a more recyclable by product that can be used as soil conditioner.
Untreated food waste has, in the past, been used as Pig Swill with devastating consequences.
Running a waste disposer costs less than 1p per day and the water used is equivalent to one flush of the toilet.
Local authorities can save around £19 per household if everyone used a waste disposer. This has encouraged some councils to offer a "money back" scheme to residents who install one and are giving back up to £80 off the cost of a disposer. Lucky for you if you live in Hereford and Worcester. See our MISSION IMPOSSIBLE details on the Home Page.
More and more building companies are incorporating disposers in their new build sites so that disposers are slowly becoming a standard piece of household equipment. They do NOT require regular maintenance other than an occasional clean with a Disposer Brush and a sachet of Disposercare to keep it fresh and pipework clear.
