Why Should I Install a Garbage Disposal?

North Shore Garbage DisposalThe garbage disposal was first invented by an architect in 1927, and was first marketed in 1935 by General Electric. Today, over 50% of all homes in the United States have a sink garbage disposal. Having this device installed in your home can provide you and your loved ones with many benefits, including:

They are environmentally friendly. Some countries have actually mandated that garbage disposals be used in order to help reduce the amount of solid waste produced by households. In some countries like Sweden and Britain, the government actually subsidizes the cost of purchasing garbage disposal units in order to encourage citizens to buy them!

– They reduce the amount of food waste dumped into the trash. Since food scraps make up about 10 to 20% of household waste, it makes good sense to use a garbage disposal. The disposal can reduce the overall amount of food waste which will be taken to the landfill. This in turn can help to reduce waste disposal costs.

– They make clean up easier. To clean up from meals, family members just scrap their meal scraps down the drain. This saves time and energy. Food processed by the garbage disposal is mashed into a liquid like state. The liquid is then flushed down the drain where it is taken with the waste water to a waste processing plant.

– They reduce the amount of odor in your trash. During the hot summer months especially, food scraps decompose very rapidly. This process can create odors which linger even after the trash is taken out.

– They can help to reduce the amount of household pests in your home. Ants, flies, cockroaches and other types of bugs are all attracted to food waste decomposing in your garbage or sitting in your sink with the dishes. Dealing with these pests and the damage to your home cause by the pests can be very expensive. In addition, the chemicals used to keep pests at bay can be harmful to family members or pets. Getting rid of the food waste by using a garbage disposal prevents all of these problems.
