Sink waste shredder, prices and standards

Thesink waste disposal unitis an appliance designed to eliminate food waste. THEgarbage disposalit is also calledfood dissipator orsink waste disposal unitfor its location: agarbage disposalit must be installed under the sink, in correspondence with the water drain.

Although for us Italians that ofgarbage disposalit is relatively new (they have been spreading in recent years), in other countries of Europe or the new continent they are now a full-blown reality. On my first trip to the US, back in 2001, it was impossible to find a house or cottage without garbage disposal.

Thegarbage disposalit has the task of reducing food waste to pulp and making it flow away through the drainage system. Given that in Italy igarbage disposalare still in their infancy, it would be necessary to increase the potential of water purification plants, as the disposal of organic waste would be moved in this context.

Due to an ineffective water purification system and local sewage systems, the use ofsink waste disposal unitit is often the subject of strong controversy and collects a lot of criticism from environmentalists.

Sink waste shredder, the legislation

Indeed the story of the garbage disposal in Italy it is very young because until recently the law prohibited its installation and use. Art. 2, cc. 8-bis and 19, of the legislative decree 16 January 2008, n. 4, went to modify paragraph 3 which read: "the disposal of waste, even if shredded, in the sewer is not allowed". Today this paragraph has been changed to: "the disposal of waste, even if shredded, in the sewer is not allowed, with the exception of organic waste coming from food waste treated with food waste disposers that reduce its mass into fine particles, subject to verification of the existence of a purification by the managing body of the integrated water service ".

Who wants to install agarbage disposal under the sinkall you have to do is buy it and assemble it, even independently. You will not need to make any reports because the dealer will take care of this. Even if the law allows the installation of asink waste disposal unitLegambiente reminds us that thewaste disposerit is not an ally of the environment and that household waste should be sent to compost either directly (with a composter available to the house) or indirectly (through separate waste collection).
