What is a waste disposal unit for?
A kitchen waste disposal unit is a handy gadget that can easily fit underneath your kitchen sink. Its main purpose is to help you dispose of kitchen waste that can’t be recycled. This includes things like chicken bones and bread crusts, the likes of which must be put into your kitchen bin. This leads to more trips to empty the bin into your outside bin, which creates more waste that will end up in a landfill. Using a waste disposal unit will cut the amount of waste you produce, freeing up your bin and sending less to the landfill, which is all good from an environmental standpoint.
A waste disposal unit works by grinding down the waste you insert into fine particles. Once all the waste is dealt with, these particles will be disposed of down your kitchen drain. It’s convenient and hygienic solution to waste disposal.

Insinkerator Waste Disposal Model 46AS ReviewsPrevious
This is the third Insinkerator I have purchased since 1999, they do the job they are supposed to and are a handy addition to the kitchen. This was a replacement for one which had been in place for about 10 years and had developed a leak in the casing at the bottom - mechanically it was still working fine. I should have purchased the model without the air switch this time, as I hadn't realised the air switch we already have fitted from our previous one is a separate unit and not part of the Insinkerator itself, but it wasn't a problem as the air switch could be disabled on this new model and the old switch could still be used - but at least we now have the option of an alternative if our existing air switch ever breaks!
Had several of these over the years, they work well. First one with the push button which is easy to install either through a whole in the sink (some sinks come with a opposite side tap who cap that can be removed) or in the work surface if you want to drill a whole.
I've had insinkerators in all my kitchens and don't understand why everyone doesn't have one. There are no scraps and peelings to deal with and the bin doesn't smell. It was easy to install and is so quiet.
This item arrived undamaged in good sound packaging - and very promptly. It has been fitted for me without a problem - it came with very clear instructions - and works extremely well.
Really pleased we purchased this. It works perfectly. It’s noisy but that’s to be expected.
