About the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA)
AMDEA is the UK trade association for the manufacturers of small and large domestic appliances. It represents over 80% of the domestic appliance industry. Members are all manufacturers, importers or distributors of household appliances and include most of the UK's top selling brands.
In 2010 those members who manufacture food waste disposers formed AMDEA’s Food Waste Disposer Group with the aim of promoting a greater awareness of the benefits of food waste disposers (FWDs) and informing the waste management debate.
The FWD Group believes the wider take-up of disposers could play a significant role in improving sustainability of both new homes and the existing urban housing stock, including multi-tenanted dwellings. Offered as an alternative to kerbside collection their widespread use could help achieve the UK’s ambitious targets for reducing landfill.
