Garbage Disposals

Scrapping leftover food into your waste bin after a meal can leave your kitchen with a pungent smell as the food begins to rot. Even if you take out the trash, the food scraps often attract scavengers that won't hesitate to tear into your garbage. Outfitting your kitchen with a disposal allows you to avoid these headaches while simplifying kitchen cleanup.

Garbage disposals work by grinding food waste into fine particles that simply wash down your sink. Instead of ending up at a garbage dump where they can emit harmful greenhouse gases, your leftovers make their way to a wastewater treatment plant. These plants process the waste in a manner that's often more environmentally friendly than composting! If your home uses a septic system, that's where the food waste will end up. With this in mind, you'll want to look for a garbage disposal that's designed for use with septic tanks.

Abt carries a wide variety of both continuous feed and batch feed garbage disposals to ensure we have the perfect model for your kitchen. Continuous feed garbage disposals operate with a standard power switch. They usually have a shield surrounding the hole in the sink to help prevent scraps from flying out as they're being ground.

Batch feed disposals only grind after you secure a lid to the sink drain. This prevents all food items from finding their way back up, making them a slightly safer option. Batch feed models are usually a bit more expensive. However, garbage disposal prices stretch from around $100 to $400 or more. So it's easy to find models of either style that fit your budget.

If you aren't sure which model is right for your kitchen, our Garbage Disposal Buying Guide is a good place to start. It can help you decide which sized motor is right for your needs among other things. Our appliance experts are another excellent resource.
