Food Waste Disposers

An InSinkErator® Food Waste Disposer (often refered to in Canada as a Garburator) is the perfect complement to a modern kitchen and the busy Canadian lifestyle. The kitchen is the entertaining hub of our homes, so we need a quick, quiet and hygienic way to dispose of food waste. With a Garburator, food scraps are conveniently deposited down the sink, ground into fine particles and flushed safely into the sewage system, eliminating nasty food smells and the need for food waste bins. InSinkErator disposers are a true evolution in how we manage kitchen food waste. Explore our disposer product range below or scroll down further to learn more about food waste disposers.

What is a Garburator?

A Garburator is a modern kitchen appliance that offers a convenient way to manage food waste in your home. It is installed neatly under the kitchen sink and attached to the drain.

With an InSinkErator unit in your kitchen, just about any kind of food waste can go right down the drain, where it is quickly ground into tiny particles and easily flushed away into the wastewater system or septic tank.  And did you know?  Modern wastewater treatment plants can capture the organics in food waste and convert it to energy or fertilizer.  This also makes a garburator an environmentally responsible option.

All that’s needed to enjoy the benefits of a garburator is standard plumbing and a power source nearby!

How A Garburator Works

Simply turn on your cold tap, put the food scraps into your sink and feed them into the InSinkErator flange that replaces your normal sink drain. Turn on the disposal and the food waste is ground into tiny particles by an internal grind ring, with NO blades involved. The food waste is virtually liquefied, then flushed out of the Garburator to safely flow into the sewage system or septic tank.

InSinkErator disposals are designed to cope with most types of food waste, including small bones, meat, fish, peelings, eggshells, nuts and much, much more.

Why Install a garburator?

Food waste disposers are once again becoming an essential appliance for the modern kitchen, whether in new construction or existing homes. The reasons are proven, which is why they have been in use for over 80 years, and why they are installed in an estimated 1 million Canadian homes.
