Internationally, Food Waste Disposers have being around for approx 70 years. In many countries they are mandatory - e.g. New Zealand as well as in many US states.

Why should a home owner require a Food Waste Disposer?

Did you know that if food left in a tin is kept for more than 36 hours the content will become poisonous? Of course you did - which is why you do not store the left-over canned fruit in the fridge in its original packaging!

Apply this in the larger environment - think of a municipal landfill where food waste is disposed of with other garbage (including empty canned goods tins). The same chemical reaction occurs there and starts to poison our underground water resources slowly making it undrinkable.

This is just one of the many arguments for the separation of waste.
