Price: $55 Service Call

A trash compactor is often used by a home or business to reduce the volume of trash. Household garbage accumulates at a fast rate, especially in the kitchen. A trash compactor is a household appliance that helps minimize the frequency of trash removal. Typically a trash compactor is installed under a kitchen counter. This device is a trash can that can be turned on to compact trash in the bag, which creates more space and thus holds more than traditional kitchen trash cans.

A trash compactor has a motor inside that operates a press, which lowers into the trash receptacle, compacts the trash, and then raises back up. Trash compactors use specially designed bags. Both paper and plastic compactor bags are available, with the paper bags having a protective lining and the plastic bags being a durable, multi-ply plastic. Compactor bags cost more than typical kitchen trash bags, but are changed less frequently. Compactors are available in 2000, 2300, or 5000 lbs. of compacting ram force. They range from 12 to 18 inches in width, 18 to 24.5 inches in depth, and 34 to 36 inches in height. Standard appliance colors are available including stainless steel; finish options include custom wood panels or you can have a panel installed to match your cabinetry.
