Survey: Do You Have an In-Sink Garbage Disposal?

Pin it button
New York City has allowed in-sink garbage disposals since 1997, but far fewer households have added them than the city expected according to Sunday's New York Times.

Some New Yorkers don't have garbage disposals because their co-op boards still will not allow them. Even though garbage disposal maker Insinkerator talks about the positive environmental impact of garbage disposals, some say they waste too much electricity or water.

Since a garbage disposal is hidden under the sink and is not a prestigious product, some people just don't think about adding them when renovating the kitchen.

Would you ever think about adding one or are you cool with composting? If you have a garbage disposal, how's it working out?
