As the long-hot summer continues, InSinkErator is highlighting the benefits of fitting a new kitchen with a food waste disposal.
This summer, the UK has been enjoying unusually hot weather, which has even led to record-breaking temperatures. For many, the long spell of hot weather has resulted in unpleasant food waste smells, insects and pests – a problem which InSinkErator believes can be addressed by installing a food waste disposer.
Food waste disposers allow food waste to be dealt with instantly, hygienically and in a sustainable manner, says InSinkErator, with additional benefits of saving space and improving cleanliness and hygiene in the kitchen. Food waste is ground into minute-sized particles, thanks to the company’s system of stainless steel grinding rings, and is then rinsed away down the drain, through the standard plumbing.
Whilst offering an alternative to traditional disposal methods, it also reduces food waste going to landfill sites and, says the company, it also helps to reduce greenhouse gases and the household’s carbon footprint.
Anne Kaarlela, Marketing Communications Manager, Europe and Russia, InSinkErator said: “In the UK, 49 per cent of homes do not have separate food waste collection, despite food accounting for around 20 per cent of all household rubbish. With the heatwave set to continue until October, a solution is needed to further prevent smelly bins that attract unwanted pests. Furthermore, a long-term solution is needed to ease the strain on landfill sites and damage to the ozone layer.
“With the increasing amount of inedible food waste generated in the home, and the difficulty for many to dispose of it, an InSinkErator food waste disposer is a discreet asset to any home.”
