There is more than one way to dispose of the food waste that accumulates in your kitchen, but the problem is that not all of these ways are environmentally safe and responsible and not all of them are convenient for you. Throwing food waste in the garbage is not helping the environment because it ends up getting buried in the landfills while it could have been used for renewable energy. To do your small part for the environment, you should be disposing of the food waste via sewage lines so that wastewater treatment plants can use the food waste to develop renewable energy.Waste King L-2600

However, the only problem with all this is that it’s difficult and sometimes darn near impossible to drain the food waste down the sink. It can easily choke your drainage lines and then you have to pay hundreds of dollars in plumbing. However, there is a convenient solution to this problem, and it’s the Waste King L-2600 Legend 0.5HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal System.

The ultra-powerful 0.5HP motor will grind all food waste and virtually liquefy it. The superior sound insulation of the waste disposer gives a relatively noiseless operation. The grinding components made of stainless steel provide the waste disposer durability, long life, and corrosion-free performance. In short, this is the product for you if you’re looking for a no-fuss waste disposal. This continuous feed operation garbage disposal will earn the place in your kitchen and make all your waste disposal troubles go away.

Powerful Vortex Motor

The Legend L-2600 will deliver an effective and efficient food waste disposal operation because it is powered by the high-speed and energy efficient Vortex motor that can run at 2600 RPM and give a power output of up to 0.5 horsepower. Compared to the competition on the market, this Legend Series Waste Disposer offers more power per pound.

The 0.5 horsepower permanent magnet Vortex motor can grind virtually all food waste so that it can flow through sewage lines without choking. This powerful motor only needs 115 volts, 60 Hz and 4.5 amperes of current to operate, which means it’s well suited for all houses.
