What customers are saying

Loving it for our place.

Sepura is a true blessing for our septic system! We've always been wary of using a garbage disposal, but Sepura provides a safe and efficient alternative. No more worries about clogging our pipes – it's been a smooth experience and we're loving being able to just shove everything into our sink!

Magic separation.

It separates like magic. In fact I dropped a screw in on "accident" and made a whole scene in front of my 6 year old like I'll never get it back. Then told her to push the button. When the screw popped out into the collection center she stood there eyes wide and mouth agape.

Good in my apartment!

My building won't allow garbage disposals due to the clogging risks, but did allow me to install a Sepura unit. It has been great. For now I've been putting my scraps into a communal rooftop garden we have, but I'm looking forward to NYC introducing compost collection in the near future. Much more countertop space now, which is definitely at a premium here, haha. Overall it has been a great addition to my kitchen.
