The Green Side of Disposers

Disposers can provide an environmentally friendly way to eliminate food waste.

Disposer flow rates can be more than 10 gallons per minute, but when used in conjunction with pulpers and compactors, these systems offer substantial savings in water use, sewage costs and waste removal charges.

Some manufacturers offer systems that capture and recirculate water, decreasing its usage, in addition to water saving flow controls.

Controls that automatically turn the energy and water off when the disposer is not in use provide increased energy efficiency.

Automated, self-contained waste handling systems can substantially reduce foodservice waste and water usage.
