In each and every house, it is kind of mandatory to have a garbage disposal unit for hygiene’s sake. Just think of the amount of mess and stink it will result in if the waste and garbage produced due to the daily chores in your kitchen is not properly disposed. This is why garbage disposals are undoubtedly one of the most important household essentials.
Though it sounds naïve, the type of waste should be considered as the most important parameter before choosing your garbage disposer. Different households have different types of waste, and garbage disposers also have their patent way of treating different types of waste (more information on that at Down the Sink).
The production of wastage depends on the number of people residing in that household. A small family will definitely produce much less organic wastes than a larger family. You may have inorganic wastes too. So be really cautious in what you are throwing down your sink. The manufacturers will tell you beforehand the type and amount of waste a disposer can handle. But if a manufacturer claims that a disposer can grind meat bones in to powder before disposing the waste, I will suggest please go for a demo.
