Despite our best efforts some of our food goes to waste, whether that be from cooking too much, to inedible parts, to natural wastage. Blaines like to recommend InSinkErator waste disposal units (WDU) to the client. These are very slick, and people are always pleasantly surprised at how quiet they are to run.
By 2023 the government has said that every UK household will receive separate weekly food waste collections as part of its plan to boost recycling with the aim of helping the country reach its target of eliminating all avoidable waste by 2050. UK householders must find a way to store their food waste until the day of their weekly collection. For many of our clients, this will mean the introduction of unhygienic countertop food caddies or additional bins that may emit smelly odours.
With people working from home more; with opening up living the kitchen is no longer just a functional space, it’s the center of the home and the idea of having a caddy with rotting food on the worktop or under the sink is so unpalatable that people want to hear about more hygienic, convenient alternatives.
As a kitchen design specialist, Blaines believe that the changes to waste management the councils are having to introduce, coupled with their quiet operation, are compelling reasons why our clients should include a waste disposer unit in their project.
