Thanks for reminding me that people like you existsethqc wrote: ↑ No way on earth I’m gonna do additional sorting. My brown bin is left unused. I already pay enough taxes to the city, I’m not gonna do additional work...
So in my case throwing stuff in the garbage or using this will have the same environmental impact. So yes I’m gonna chose convenience since bylaws allow it where I live.
PS : I’m not a « boomer » before anyone says so.
PPS : If they don’t want anyone to buy this, they should put a national law to prohibit sale. And then we can say we have a dictatorial government.

I dont really have the space in my yard for a composter, that, and my dog would get into it.

The waste management system needs to be updated to handle more and more garbage getting dumped in the sewer system, simply add a large garborator type device to pulverize everything. The system is still based on 1800's gravity system.Scote64 wrote: ↑ You definitely don't want any of the cheap models using galvanized steel or plastic - the sort of junk you find installed by the builder in spec-built homes. This at least is stainless steel.
But check your local bylaws - these are banned in many jurisdictions now because they don't want you putting food waste into the local sewer system, they want you to compost it.

The issue is that excessive organic matter being discharged from the sewer system encourages unwanted bacteria and algae growth. Pulverizing it and sterilizing it before discharge doesn't help. Generally they now have to separate out the dried and sterilized solid waste and ship it to a landfill. They would rather have you separate kitchen waste at the source and send it for composting.

It’s all political at this point, I have had this unit installed now for almost 5 years with no issues. It is significantly less noisy (and doesn’t sound as stressed) as the 3/4 hp insekerator badger xp that my parents use.

Most of the downvotes are for "bad product" (check the little ? symbol), but given that the reviews on the product itself are fairly good, they are probably just noting that it is not legal to install in many places in Canada now. No moral judgement involved - it's illegal, and was made so for what appear to be good and valid reasons. If you want to do things like installing a banned waste disposal unit or burning trash in your back yard when there's a burning ban, that's between you and the bylaw officer giving you a ticket.
