This summer, the UK has been enjoying unusually hot weather, which has even led to record-breaking temperatures of 35.1°C*. For many consumers the long spell of hot weather, coupled with fortnightly bin collections, has resulted in unpleasant food waste smells, insects and pests. An InSinkErator® food waste disposer is the ideal solution to this growing problem.
With an InSinkErator® food waste disposer, households can reduce the amount of food waste lingering in their bins, unwanted odours and the risk of attracting rodents and insects. InSinkErator® food waste disposers allow food waste to be dealt with instantly, hygienically and in a sustainable manner, with further benefits of saving space and improving cleanliness and hygiene in the kitchen. Food waste is ground into minute-sized particles, thanks to the innovative system of stainless steel grinding rings. The food waste is then dispatched and simply rinsed away safely down the drain, through the standard plumbing.
Not only does this offer an alternative to traditional disposal methods, it reduces food waste going to landfill sites and it also helps to reduce greenhouse gases and the household’s carbon footprint. In addition, and where there is an anaerobic digester, within the sewage system, the nutrients from the food waste can be recovered and turned into biogas and fertiliser.
Anne Kaarlela, Marketing Communications Manager, Europe and Russia, InSinkErator® says: “In the UK, 49 per cent of homes do not have separate food waste collection**, despite food accounting for around 20 per cent of all household rubbish. With the heatwave set to continue until October***, a solution is needed to further prevent smelly bins that attract unwanted pests.
“Furthermore, a long-term solution is needed to ease the strain on landfill sites and damage to the ozone layer.
“With the increasing amount of inedible food waste generated in the home, and the difficulty for many to dispose of it, an InSinkErator® food waste disposer is a discreet asset to any home. As the global leader and the inventor of food waste disposers, InSinkErator® has a range of models to suit every kitchen, lifestyle and budget.”
