Why we use Waste King garbage disposals

As an environmentally friendly business, Ora cares about the type of impact it creates when it carries out its operations. As a food business, we understand that we can create negative harm to the environment through food waste or packaging. That’s why we try to minimize the harm we make in every area of our business. An example of how we do so is with the use of a garbage disposal. As you may know, food waste is still responsible for some of the most damaging greenhouse gases as they are sent away to landfills. Not every city is blessed with a garbage system that takes away food scrap to composting, especially in remote locations. That’s where the garbage disposal comes into play.

Put simply, a garbage disposal is a device that you attach under your sink that grinds up food scrap before it is sent away through the pipes. Even if your city uses a composting system, it’s a good idea to have one anyway in case food scraps slip down the sink. This can create a huge impact when food scraps add up. After food is grind up and fed through the pipes, it enters the wastewater system which gets processed typically into fertilizer products and biogas. This is a much more green approach than sending food off to landfills and is why garbage disposals are some of the most underrated household appliances.

If you are new to garbage disposals, don’t worry, today we’re going to talk about one of the best products that we use ourselves. If you would like to do your own research there are some great resources out there such as this one that outlines what is the best garbage disposal you can buy. Without further ado, today we’re going to talk about the Waste King Legend 8000.

As a food business, we deal with food scraps a lot so we wanted to make sure we had the most powerful garbage disposal able to handle everything we throw at it. So when picking a garbage disposal, we opted for one with a 1 horsepower motor. It is the largest you can get. There are smaller motors ranging from 1/3 horsepower to 3/4 horsepower too. But generally speaking, you don’t want anything too small because it won’t have enough power to grind anything!

The Waste King Legend 8000 is a great garbage disposal for a number of reasons. First, it’s made by Waste King which is a well-known brand that has been manufacturing garbage disposals for decades. So the quality is amazing. Second, the price is great. Third, it comes with a great warranty. In our case the warranty is lifetime, meaning as long as we remain owners of the garbage disposal, we will get warranty forever. In addition, Waste King will have their staff repair the garbage disposal in-house – all for free!

It may sound like overkill for you to have a Waste King Legend 8000 in your house since we’re using it for commercial purposes. But if you think about all those summer barbecue parties you’ll be hosting and the amount of guests that you’ll host for dinners, you’ll need something with a 1 horsepower motor to grind through all those bones and starchy potato peels. Which is why we can’t recommend it enough even for the average household. So go see Waste King garbage disposal reviews to read more about this product and compare the specs with other disposals. You’ll see what we mean by how great this machine really is.
