In many major cities of the world, there is a perennial problem; garbage disposal. One of the most serious components of this problem is wet food waste from the kitchen. Torn and leaking garbage bags, nauseating stench, pest infestations, stray animals scavenging for food in uncollected garbage bins, are still common in our modern cities. Wet food waste accumulation, whether it is in your garbage bin, in your street or in your home is a breeding ground for rodents, insects and diseases. All these present a serious health hazard to you and your family as well as the environment.
A recent study conducted by the National University of Malaysia shows that Kuala Lumpur discards about 1.2kg of solid waste per capita/ per day. With the advent of mandatory trash segregation by September 2015 affecting most major cities, the use of food waste disposer will be a key component in helping households manage their waste, since food waste makes up about 74% of total waste discarded.
