How does a commercial garbage disposal work?

Most disposal units are connect to your sewage system. This means that the ground up food waste is flushed away down the drain. But there are also garbage disposers that reduces the volume and mass of food waste drastically and stores the dry remains in a waste container which then can be composted and used as a fertilizer. The IMC WasteStation is an example of this type of garbage disposer.

What is the difference compared to a household garbage disposer?

Commercial food waste disposers are quite similar to a garbage disposal you might use in your home kitchen. They both grind food waste into small particles. But the difference between the machines are mostly the size, durability and the power of the motor. For commercial and industrial use it is important that the disposer can handle high volumes of food waste without jamming and clogging the drain pipes from your kitchen. In other words, the garbage disposal unit must be able to handle heavy-duty grinding of commingled food scraps continuously in an commercial environment.

What types are there?

Roughly there are three types of commercial food waste disposers:

  1. Garbage disposal with sink – This is a complete garbage disposal installation which can be installed in your kitchen. The food waste collector comes with a large sink, garbage disposal and console to operate the unit. The only thing you need is a commercial kitchen faucet and a connection to your sewage. Most models recirculate the water which means less water is wasted down the drain.
  2. Garbage disposal without sink – This unit looks quite similar as a garbage disposal for home use. The more bulkier and powerful commercial garbage disposal can be attached under your kitchen sink. It is recommended to adapt the garbage disposal to the brand of the sink bowl, since not every garbage disposal can be connected to every type of sink. To make sure the garbage disposal is connected correctly to your sink bowl you can make use of multiple types of adapters.
  3. Garbage disposal with collection bin – This type of garbage disposal grinds up food waste but then separates the water from the food waste via a dewatering system. The so called ‘grey water’ is flushed down the drain, while the dry food particles are captured in a bin. The dry food waste particles can then be composted to use as a fertilizer later on. This is the most eco-friendly way to dispose and reuse e commercial food waste. When food waste recycling is important for your business, then this machine is recommended.

How to operate a disposer?

The way you need to operate a commercial food waste disposer depends on the type and brand. But generally it goes as follows:

  1. When a new garbage disposer is installed, make sure there is no packaging material left in the grinding chamber.
  2. Do not pre-load the disposer with high volumes of food waste before turning the machine on.
  3. Start the disposer and turn on a stream of cold water so the water flows into the disposer.
  4. Gradually feed food waste into the disposer through the sink flange.
  5. Do not batch feed high volumes of food waste at once.
  6. Feed a continuous flow of food waste into the disposer.
  7. The disposal unit grounds up the food waste inside the grind chamber into small particles.
  8. The ground food waste is flushed away with the water flow trough the plumping into the main sewer line.
  9. After grinding keep the garbage disposer running for a minute to clear and clean the grind chamber.
  10. The food particles end up in the waste water treatment facility where it is further processed.

Troubleshooting: When a jam occurs turn off the machine completely before un-jamming the machine.  Always follow the guidelines in the instruction manual from the manufacturer.

It is recommended to place a trash can close to the garbage disposal unit to make sure that the food waste stream will not contaminate with foreign materials such as packaging material.

When an operator is using the waste disposer it is convenient that he or she has access to a trash can for discarding materials that do not belong inside the grind chamber of the disposal.

This Carlisle round waste container has a 10 gallon capacity and is available in multiple colors. The open top waste container can also be equipped with an optional lid.
