About Food Waste Disposer

A food waste disposer is in most of the settings, placed under the sink. It collects all the food waste and grinds to form small particles that can be flushed away. You must replace the sink plughole with the food waste disposer plughole so that the waste gets directly collected in the unit.

20-30% of the household rubbish is food and it can accumulate in the house to attract unwanted pests and animals, and be a health hazard for you. Food waste disposer in sink area not only becomes part of the waste treatment system but automatically handles the disposing without any manual monitoring.

Batch feed food waste disposers are much less popular than non-stop units, despite the fact that they're a powerful solution to eliminate unwanted food waste. While non-stop feed disposers use the easy press of an air switch, batch feed requires extra steps to work. When you have a large amount of waste meals to eliminate, the food waste is managed in batches in place of continuously.
