A food disposer chews up food scraps that are fed down the drain with a heavy flow of water. The disposal, mounted to the underside of the sink drain, has an electric motor that is either hardwired or plugged into a 120-volt box or receptacle, usually located at the back of the sink cabinet.

Inside the food disposer in what is called the grinding chamber, shredding blades break down the food, and then an impeller arm and plate force the particles and liquid down the drain. Dishwasher drain water also runs through the food disposer so that any large particles are ground up before they reach the drainpipe.
