There are controversies revolving around the use of garbage disposals such as whether or not it is an eco-friendly way of disposing kitchen wastes. Well, below are some of the reasons why having a sink garbage disposal system is still worth considering:
Less garbage gas emissions
Household wastes end up in landfills. More than 12% of these waste products are food leftovers or decomposing items. Such wastes emit a type of gas that is stronger than carbon dioxide. So if your waste won’t have to go through this process in landfills, then you can help reduce uncontrolled harmful gas emissions.
It is hygienic and sanitary for your home
You don’t have to dump food leftovers or any other decomposable items into trash bins that can be inviting to pests and other insects – not to mention a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Now if you have a disposal system installed undersink, such leftovers will be shredded into minute particles and be flushed through your plumbing system, all the way through the sewage.
Potential energy resource
As mentioned, food wastes emit methane gas, which can be utilized in order to generate power. Just imagine if all residents will be using a waste disposal device, their ground up waste will be managed in treatment plants and used to produce significant amount energy for household consumption.
In conclusion, all forms of technology have advantages and disadvantages. What counts is whether or not the benefits outweigh possible risks.
