Environmental Impacts of InSinkErator Products
People all over the globe are concerned about the environment. While there's no single solution for managing and getting rid of the world’s waste, even the simple things we do may have an important impact on the environment – like using an InSinkErator® garbage disposal to keep food waste out of landfills. That may help reduce methane emissions by decomposing food waste. Rotting food also contributes to leachate, an acidic liquid residue that can seep into and contaminate ground water.
Alternatively, a capable wastewater treatment facility can convert food waste from garbage disposals into renewable energy & fertilizer.
Biosolids are the nutrient-rich organic materials that result from the treatment of wastewater. Biosolids contain many essential plant nutrients and can be recycled as fertilizer or soil conditioner for use in agriculture.
Additionally, durable and long-lasting InSinkErator® disposals require little, if any, maintenance.
