Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bubbie Glad I bought this
This is my first compactor. Over the holidays we had so much trash, I decided this might be the thing to try. My researched came up with this one and it had good reviews. When it arrived I was to say the least skeptical. Once I started to use it I couldn't believe how much space in my dumpster it saved. We keep it on our garage and just empty the inside trash can right into it. Super simple to operate and even though it's in the garage it is still very quiet.
The outside blend in with all my other cabinets in the garage and it hardly takes up any space. We are a large family of 6 and I have one bag of trash now per week.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by None I like it.
Bought this unit right after Christmas as my wife would not stop bugging me for a new one. Our old one was over thirty years old and the motor finally quit. When we got this one and tried it out for a couple of days, we were kind of not happy with it. But, now that we've had it for a couple of weeks, we really like it. It compacts a lot more then the old one. Thanks. Now where do I get the bags for it?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MatthewJR Works great in the kitchen too.
Instead of putting the wheels on we flipped the dolly that holds the wheels upside down and put some adhesive strips on it then set the compactor on top of it. This puts the top of the compactor right at counter top height and it looks fine in the kitchen over next to the other trash can. As for functionality, its a great compactor and we're down to taking our recycles out twice a month now instead of twice a week.

I bought this compactor three weeks ago to place in the garage beside some floor cabinets. The previous comments that I reviewed seemed to be mostly positive and Home Depot's price for this unit was the cheapest that I found. I don't use it too often, but it seems to work very well. I have it on its castor frame so I'll be able to easily clean behind it. I had no problems with the little amount of assembly or operation. It's not loud or noisy for the garage. Overall, I'm very satisfied with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shirley Best compactor I have owned!
I moved and the new home didn't have one. New home had no place to take out cabinet for one. I found this one and it fit perfectly near a plug! And it's quiet and compacts better than my previous one! I would totally recommend this compactor!

Bought this to replace my old Compactor which was maybe 30 years old. While it works great it does not compact as well as my old one but I was expecting that. I only have to take out the trash every week and a half to two weeks. Having said that it is just the wife and I. Every home should have one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CCStanton Can be used anywhere!
I have an older home but am not ready to put in a whole new kitchen, so this Trash Compactor works beautifully in my utility room! I didn't bother to put the wheels on it so it looks like a permanent fixture between the washer and the cupboard. This unit looks so much better than an open trash can and it dose a great job of compacting almost any trash!
