Environmental Benefits

Rubbish Disposals Starving Landfills for Over 75 Years

InSinkErator® garbage disposals don’t just offer practical, contemporary convenience; they can also provide an environmentally sound answer to the growing problem of food waste.

Food waste disposers have always played an important role in responsible waste management. Garberators® divert organic waste from landfills where it would otherwise create methane gas emissions (a potent greenhouse gas) and leachate, which could contaminate ground water.

With a Garberator®, food waste is finely ground and sent to a wastewater treatment plant, where it can be converted to fertilizer, energy and clean water. Contary to popular belief, Garberators® use only small amounts of water and electricity.

The environmental advantages of food waste disposers have been demonstrated and documented by third party studies from around the globe.
