Lots of people own garburators. We don’t.Garburators are not an environmentally friendly option to get rid of your food waste. It requires a considerable amount of water to run, places unnecessary strain on our sewer system and water treatment facilities and negatively impacts aquatic life. Instead, please compost (or use a green cone). – City of Richmond website
I would install an insinkerator if it looked like this. Tee hee! The Flintstones knew a little about zero waste.There are a lot of smart people who agree with me on this not wanting a garburator thing including David Suzuki and his Queen of Green. http://www.davidsuzuki.org/blogs/queen-of-green/2010/11/break-up-with-your-garburator/#comments Even “The Green Book” states that garburators are not the right choice for food waste disposal. We use our Green Cone and our composter to take care of all of our food waste. I have heard rumours that we will be getting compost pick up soon which should make it a lot easier for people who don’t have the space or time for composting. It will also reduce over-all garbage dumping because more things can be composted in industrial composters such as Q-tips, used paper towels, pizza boxes, latex balloons, 100% cotton balls and hair (yes, hair).
Again I would like to say that this is just one of the choices we as a family have made. In no way are we judging anyone for making different choices. I would just like people to think about why they do things though and make decisions for themselves.
