Reasons To Invest In A Commercial Food Disposal Unit?

Some companies think investing in a waste disposal unit is a waste of money. But if you look at the benefits of a waste disposal unit more carefully, you will notice that there are huge savings both in time and in productivity for your company.

Having a waste disposal unit with your business is a professional approach to efficient waste disposal. Providing your company with efficient removal of waste material from your kitchen. Promoting a sterile approach to waste removal.

It’s evident that there is a strict discipline needed for hygiene with the commercial catering industry. When you are dealing with food and the public, waste management with your company should be at the forefront of your companies agenda.

It’s not productive for staff within both small and large catering industries to take random trips to the bins during busy periods. Another standout issue with storing food waste in containers indoors is that it can lead to bad odours. If you think about convenience, it is better to have your waste disposal units.

What Is A Waste Disposal Unit?

A waste disposal unit is a famous modern-day kitchen piece of equipment. It provides the user with additional options for removing food waste and trimming from your property.

There are two types of waste disposal unit that will both fit to your kitchen sink directly under the kitchen waste.

The first type, and most common, is the continuous feed unit. This type of unit group will allow you to add food waste to the unit while it is running.

This type will also allow you to run water from your kitchen sink mixer tap at the same time as you add the waste food to the unit.

The second type is called a batch feed unit. This type of unit will allow you to add an amount of waste to the unit and will then lock down the sink waste. Generally when the sink waste has been locked down the unit will only then start to operate.

It’s an ethical code of practice to prevent damage to your waste disposal unit by only using it for particular items. You should refrain from adding things that may end up damaging the appliance.

Items You Can’t Use In Your Waste Disposal Unit

  • Corn On The Cob
  • Bones
  • Cellary
  • Crab Shells

  • Ostyer Shells

Sea Shells

Items You Can Use In Your Waste Disposal Unit

  • Veg Peelings
  • Fruit Trimmings
  • Food Waste From Plates

Veg Trimmings

Materials like this will ruin the sharp edges on the blades of your waste disposer. Over time this can make the food waste disposer less effective. Thus, in turn, defeating the purposes of having the waste disposer. A list of objects to avoid should be included in the instruction manual. Anything that is not appropriate for your waste disposal should go into the rubbish.

What To Look For When Purchasing A Waste Disposal Unit

Purchasing a waste disposal unit can be quite daunting when you are not entirely sure of which one will work with your needs.

Benefits for The Environment

Using garbage disposals can be excellent for the environment. They are extremely helpful in keeping the environment clean. A lot of waste is composed mostly of our food scraps, and disposals help reroute this trash. This waste can also be turned into a source of renewable energy.

Garbage disposals also encourage people to avoid using plastic bags to dispose of food waste. Furthermore, disposals can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions since they do not require any transportation of our waste products. They also contribute to a decrease in the overall production of methane gas. Because less trash ends up in landfills when people use disposals, less trash decomposes, which means that less methane is released into the atmosphere.
