Why You Need a Garbage Disposal

Top 10 Reasons to Have a Garbage Disposal Installed


Born in Iowa in 1895, John Hammes is credited with inventing the garbage disposal. A simple mechanism, garbage disposals have a shredder ring that spins at almost 2,000 rotations per minute, grinding food scraps into pulp and washing the pulp down the drain.

Having a garbage disposal system put in your home provides many benefits, including adding convince, value and reducing costs. Here are the top 10 reasons to have a garbage disposal installed in your kitchen:

Practical Reasons to Have a Garbage Disposal Installed

Many people disregard the fact that a disposal will simplify their lives, with a garbage disposal conveniently disposing of leftover food scrapes by flipping a switch, making kitchen clean-up chores quick and easy.

A garbage disposal controls food waste effectively, preventing the smell of rotten food in the kitchen. This also helps to reduce the incidence of house flies and other insects that are attracted to the smell of decaying food.

A garbage disposal keeps plumbing from getting clogged with food particles, protecting the plumbing system and cutting down on plumbing bills.

Disposal systems are easily installed, with a professional plumber being able to hook up a system in roughly an hour with no new electrical connections required.

Economic Reasons to Have a Garbage Disposal Installed

Having a garbage disposal installed will save you money in a long run, cutting down on waste and plumbing bills.

Installing a garbage disposal system is a simple upgrade that will add a great feature to your home, increasing both resale value and appeal as many buyers feel garbage disposals are a necessity.

Garbage disposal systems are very efficient and highly economical to operate. The cost of operating a garbage disposal system is negligible, amounting to only pennies a month, when compared to processing scraps of food waste for bio-fertilizers.

Garbage disposal systems are very space effective, being very compact and efficient. The entire disposal system fits directly under the kitchen sink, so it stays completely out of sight.

Environmental Reasons to Have a Garbage Disposal Installed

A garbage disposal help protect the environment by effectively breaking down food waste, reducing environmental waste products. Researchers report that food scraps account for almost 25 percent of the total environment waste products produced by human activity.

Food scraps processed by a garbage disposal system can be used as highly effective all-natural fertilizer and also as an effective source of renewable energy.
