Environmental Benefits

Each year in New Zealand, tons of food waste is trucked to landfills. Once there, it quickly decomposes and produces methane, an environmentally harmful greenhouse gas which is at least 21 times more potent than CO2.

While composting provides one approach to tackling the food waste management challenge, it isn’t always practical for today’s busy lifestyle.

Enter InSinkErator®. Our food waste disposers provide a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to transporting leftovers to landfills. Plus, capable wastewater treatment plants can even recycle food scraps into energy and fertilizer.
