Trash compactor Repair and Maintenance

As the name suggests, a trash compactor is an appliance that compresses trash, thus reducing the amount of garbage that must be put outside for removal each week. At first glance, a compactor looks like a regular trash can. However, if you could see its inner workings, you would realize that it is equipped with a motor and a press. When you turn on the motor, the press lowers and begins to crush and squeeze the trash, thus causing it to take up much less space. The compactor uses its own plastic or paper bags to hold the garbage once that process has taken place. Removal of the bags is quick and easy, making a trash compactor an indispensable space-saver for your home or commercial kitchen.
