Having a garbage disposal at your home is a tremendous benefit for anyone who cooks or eats at home. Anyone who cooks or eats at home has food scraps, and there are three options: sending food waste to a landfill, composting food waste, or putting it into a garbage disposal. For anyone who lives in the city – or in relatively close proximity to other humans, for that matter – composting, although eco-friendly, is simply not an option. On the other hand, sending food scraps to a landfill has environmental consequences associated with it that are hard to ignore.
Disposing of food waste in a landfill increases use of paper and plastic through increased use of garbage bags and having to take waste out more frequently. Plus, less food waste in a landfill means less production of methane through decomposition – methane is a potent greenhouse gas. Using the Kitchen Aid KCDB250G ½ HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal instead of a landfill is really more environmentally friendly.
Plus, using the Kitchen Aid KCDB250G ½ HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal allows you to keep a cleaner home. It prevents food scraps from sitting in the trash, creating unpleasant odors, attracting vermin, and allowing bacteria to build up. Even if you take your trash out every day, leaky garbage bags can set up the perfect habitat for bacteria. By using a garbage disposal, food scraps are disposed of quickly and cleanly, without allowing food waste to sit in your home. Additionally, using a garbage disposal that is high quality and has an efficient motor, you use less water and electricity disposing of food waste, and you avoid expensive plumbing problems that can arise when chunky food debris are flushed down the sink, potentially becoming trapped in the pipes. When you use a disposal of high quality, like the Kitchen Aid KCDB250G ½ HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal, food is reduced to fine particles and flushed away, ensuring that you avoid smelly waste in your home, and prevent plumbing issues from food clogs.
