Have you ever lived at an apartment complex with a trash compactor? How do they work?

  • I did. it's pretty convenient. The place we stayed in had a huge compactor. you just opened the chute, dropped in your bags, latched the chute cover and pushed the big button. they had a list of rules and a list of step by step instructions right by the compactor. i reopened the chute after the first couple of times. it didnt really seem to do anything because there wasnt enough trash in it to compact. dont worry. the people that come after you will help it along. Good luck!

  • Are you using the trash compactor for entertainment?
    Maybe fill garbage bags with air so they will pop, or pudding so they make a big squishy mess.
    Oh, or fill the bag with spaghetti and freak people out!

    That would be fun.
