Garbage disposal is a major concern for everyone. Household disposal systems, restaurant garburators and sophisticated food waste disposals systems all play a role in keeping our kitchens clean and our food safe and free from contamination. A garbage disposal or garburator is an electrical device installed under a kitchen sink between the drain and the U-bend. It shreds food waste into very small pieces so that they can be passed through the plumbing without clogging. Also called a food waste disposal, the most popular models are made by In-Sink-Erator, probably the largest manufacturer of garbage disposals.
There are two kinds of garbage disposals: Continous and Batch Feed
The most common is the continuous-feed version; once the unit is turned on — usually by a switch on the wall resembling a light switch — it continues to run and grind food until switched off. Water should always be kept running through the drain when the disposal is switched on to prevent damage to the blades. A continuous feed model can also be operated by an air switch instead of a standard electric switch. An air switch is a small button on the counter or sink which, when pressed, delivers a puff of air to a control unit mounted under the sink. The puff of air makes the control unit start or stop the unit. The main benefits of an air switch are convenience and safety. An air switch is more convenient, because it can be mounted right next to or even on the sink itself, and it is safer because being non-electric, it is safe to touch with wet hands.
Less common is the batch-feed variety, which will not run until its lid has been put in place and locked; this prevents accidents whereby a child or inattentive adult tries to fish something out of the drain and the unit is accidentally switched on. The other benefit of a batch feed model is that the cover keeps foreign objects such as cutlery falling into the unit while it is running. Such accidents can damage the unit, and nearly always ruin the item dropped in too.

By putting an InSinkErator disposer in your kitchen, you’re doing your part to help reduce a growing problem. That’s because when food waste is dumped in landfills, bacteria and other harmful organisms can seep into the ground and contaminate our water. With an InSinkErator disposer, food waste is ground into fine particles and safely flushed into your sewage system. Decades of scientific studies have shown this to be a sound ecological alternative. At wastewater treatment facilities, the food waste can be converted into useful energy, or recycled into agricultural fertilizer.
