Annemarie C. This is one amazing appliance. I live in a community with no municipal household waste recycling. I use this system twice daily - once in the morning for breakfast scraps, fridge clearouts, coffee grounds, etc. In the evening, after dinner cleanup and other daily household wastes, I turn it… on for overnight. In each instance, the end product is very minimal, almost like sand. I then dispose of it outdoors in our yard. You could also throw out the remains in the garbage as they are completely recycled and will deteriorate nicely in a landfill without taking up any space at all. You can dispose of anything including chicken bones. You can leave your scraps in the recycler for days as there is a standby mode to move the air through the filters. The use of electricity is minimal - only for the drying and grinding. It is expensive but worth it. I bet you will get your money back when you start altering your purchases to meet only daily use so that there is no backup of kitchen scraps that need to go in the garbage.
