A preliminary design for a single family household refuse grinder was developed during this program as part of an overall study to evaluate the technical feasibility of transporting ground household refuse through existing sewers. In the system under consideration, the grinder reduces most of the components of household refuse into a slurry formed with the non-fecal component of household water and transports it through the house sewer lateral to the sewer where it is mixed with the rest of the water. The system requires a modification in household plumbing and a storage tank to separate and store the non-fecal component of waste water.
