Ernie's Disposal is a location in The Brave Little Toaster.
Role in the film
Toaster and the other appliances are sent here by the Cutting-Edge Appliances. Upon arriving, they listen to the Junkyard Cars talk about their lives, by singing them, before ending up there while trying to avoid the Giant Magnet.
Toaster and his gang were almost fed to the Crusher after having given up hope of ever seeing their Master Rob again. However, Rob and his girlfriend Chris arrived after having been tricked into going there by the T.V. at Rob's apartment, giving them hope for their survival. They fled the conveyor belt and attempted to reunite with Rob, but were relentlessly pursued by the Magnet, who refused to have his work interrupted. The gang tried numerous times to meet Rob, but missed him each time, largely due to the Magnet. After evading the Magnet several times, he became violent and sucked up every scrap of junk surrounding him, determined to finish off the appliances no matter what it took.
However, Rob was at the conveyor belt and soon found Blanky, who he immediately recognized as his blanket. He then found Radio and Lampy, and soon afterward, Kirby. Toaster meanwhile was separated and just barely avoided the Crusher. Unfortunately, the Magnet struck again and stole the appliances, and Rob attempted to yank them away. Completely ignoring Rob's own safety, the Magnet dumped him and the appliances on the conveyor belt to the Crusher, trapping him under the debris. Rob desperately called for Chris to save him, and was moments away from being crushed by the machine. Seeing this, Toaster sacrificed himself by throwing himself into the gears of the Crusher, stopping the machine mere moments before Rob was crushed.
Rob soon retrieved all of his appliances from the Disposal and repaired Toaster as well. What became of the Magnet is unknown, but the junkyard is presumably back in business. The appliances never forgot their near-death experience there as it was Blanky who told Wittgenstein: "You wouldn't like the junkyard; we've been there and it's not a nice place."
