For convenience and sanitation, garbage disposals help rid you of your garbage and food waste. A garbage disposal unit is electrically powered and installed under a kitchen sink between the sink's drain and the trap. The disposal unit shreds food waste into pieces small enough to pass through plumbing.
Garbage disposals keep food scraps out of landfills. That is important because when materials like food, paper and plant waste decompose in landfills, they produce the greenhouse gas methane.
On average, your garbage disposal should last you 8 to 12 years before the blades will wear down or the motor will burn out. Modern garbage disposals are much more long-lasting than older ones.
