Garbage Disposals

Garbage Disposals:

The world’s garbage flows from many different sources, in various forms, and it only makes sense that getting rid of it requires a variety of approaches. While there is no waste management silver bullet, food waste disposals are both a practical and environmentally responsible way to help manage the more than 31 million tons of solid waste represented by food scraps generated in the US each year.

Trucking food waste to landfills and incinerating it generates emissions. In landfills food scraps decompose quickly, producing methane, a greenhouse gas at least 21 times more potent in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide, plus an acidic liquid residue (leachate) that can seep into ground water.

Home composting (when done properly) makes sense, but it’s not always practical for all people everywhere – in crowded urban settings, in high-rise buildings, in frigid weather. Using disposals complements composting.
