If your family constantly argues over whose turn it is to take out the trash, you should consider buying a trash compactor. Waste compactors reduce the volume of your trash by 75 to 80 percent. This means five times fewer trips to the curb. There is also an environmental impact. Trash compactors mean less space in landfills and fewer plastic trash bags. Your kitchen will look nicer and, with built-in air fresheners, smell better. Home trash compactors are easy to use and fit conveniently under your counter.
Three of the top trash compactors on the market are the Broan Elite 15XE, Whirlpool TU950QPXS and the KitchenAid Architect KUCS03FTSS.
