Find the right model for your home.
  • Trash compactors can compress bottles, cartons, paper, plastics, and dry food waste to less than half its original volume -- important in areas where garbage-collection fees are based on volume but less so in those with mandatory recycling.
  • Under-counter, freestanding, and convertible units are available in widths from 12 to 18 inches.
  • A key-activated on/off switch is a safety feature that prevents children from operating the compactor.
  • Some models incorporate features such as a removable rammer to simplify cleanup, a toe-touch latch that opens the door when your arms are full, and an automatic deodorizer.
