Trash compactors for the home have been around for about forty years. A well maintained and efficiently operating trash compactor can be one of the most important money saving appliances in the home. The newer models available today cost in the area of $500 to $1500, depending on individual preference. The addition of a compactor should be viewed as an investment. A properly performing appliance of this type can change four to six bags of trash into one. Costs are reduced and value is added to both the homeowner and the community as the volume of trash becomes smaller. The reduction process is simple. Starting the appliance activates a metal plate located inside the compactor that pushes down, or compacts the trash. Compacting glass is not recommended but otherwise the process works well on most recyclables. Some people double the compactor benefits by using two, one for trash and one for recyclables. Maximizing benefits requires keeping the compactor operating efficiently. Performing some simple maintenance procedures regularly, like cleaning, will keep the compactor functioning smoothly. When questions arise about care and maintenance, or appliance repair , seek information in the owner’s manual. If the manual has been lost contact the manufacturer, either online or by phone, and ask them for a copy that matches the model number. For more complicated issues concerning care or appliance repair , for example issues dealing with the motor or electrical parts, it is best to seek the services of a highly trained professional.
