Term Definition
Trash Compactor

Large machines that condense waste into smaller amounts for easier disposal. Smaller trash compactor devices may be found in homes, while larger, commercial machines are used by landfills and waste management facilities. Many different types of waste can be placed into a trash compactor, including dry garbage like paper and boxes and wet trash like food waste. Trash compactors are especially good at compressing large, bulky items, greatly limiting the amount of space they must take up in a landfill.
