The Benefits of a Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal is a common and effective way of dealing with kitchen waste. Although you should watch what you put down your disposal, there are many benefits to having one.

Environmentally Friendly

A garbage disposal reduces waste. According to the US Department of Agriculture, food waste is estimated at between 30-40 percent of the food supply in the nation.

When foods are able to be put down the garbage disposal, they could be reused. They may be turned into renewable energy or fertilizer.

This will save the waste from ending up somewhere in a landfill.

Food Waste

Most of the time, food waste will be thrown in the trash, and if it sits too long, it can cause a major stench.

Rather than dealing with a smelly kitchen and an excessive amount of trash bags, it can be disposed of at the disposal.

The garbage disposal breaks food down and liquefies it, which then flushes out with the other wastewater.

Plumbing Protection

Without a garbage disposal, what would happen if food found its way into the sink?

It would cause major plumbing issues and clogs on a regular basis.

When your drain or plumbing is clogged, you may have to hire a plumber to fix it. Avoiding this issue by installing a garbage disposal, can save you money yearly.
