There's an easier way to manage your food waste.

Using an InSinkErator garbage disposal to keep food scraps out of your trash reduces bacteria, leaving your kitchen cleaner, fresher and more hygienic. Garbage disposal use also reduces the amount of food waste taken to landfills and the resulting methane emissions.

Keep odors, pests and bacteria out of your kitchen.

No matter how clean your kitchen is, food waste discarded in the trash creates foul odors and attracts ants, flies and cockroaches. Your trashcan is also a major magnet for salmonella and E. coli – household germs that feed on the food waste in your trash. Using a garbage disposal reduces food waste in your trash, annoying kitchen odors, and harmful household bacteria.

The U.S. is on pace to run out of landfill space in 18 years, potentially creating an environmental disaster.1 When you throw food waste into your garbage, it ends up in a landfill. Each year, food waste is responsible for 18% of landfill methane emissions, or about 21 million tons of methane gas.2 Using a garbage disposal reduces the amount of food waste taken to landfills and the resulting methane emissions.

Using a garbage disposal is easy!

Never put fats, oils, or grease into a garbage disposal.

  • Run a steady stream of cold water into the sink before turning on the garbage disposal.

  • Turn on the disposal before placing any food waste into it.

  • Gradually feed food waste into the disposal.

  • Avoid putting large amounts of food waste all at once as this may slow the grinding process.

  • Once the food waste has been broken down, turn the disposal off and let water run for a few seconds to flush the drain pipe.
