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!
