WHAT DO I NEED TO FIT A WASTE DISPOSER

  • You need a sink with:-
  • A 90mm sink hole
  • If it is more than 20mm thick you will need an extended sink flange...ask us
  • A 13amp socket in the cupboard under the sink
  • Either a spur switch on the wall to turn the machine on and off or, if you want an air switch fitted a 32mm hole in your sink or work surface for the air button.
If you can't have or don't want either of the above then choose a BATCH FEED machine that operates from the plug in the sink OR purchase a REMOTE CONTROL UNIT

WHAT DO I NEED TO FIT A WASTE DISPOSER

Disposers V. Bins
  1. 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.
  2. The collection and transportation of waste including food waste costs the Taxpayer £1.6 billion per year. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Untreated food waste has, in the past, been used as Pig Swill with devastating consequences.
  6. Running a waste disposer costs less than 1p per day and the water used is equivalent to one flush of the toilet.
  7. Local authorities can save around £19 per household if everyone used a waste disposer..
  8. 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.
