Trash compactors are large appliances used for the disposal of garbage, and hold more than normal indoor garbage cans. They can be found in buy mode under "Appliances -> Large Appliances".
Junk Genie Trash CompactorEdit
The Junk Genie system is the perfect answer to total trash control. Efficiently holding the equivalent of several ordinary trash cans, the Junk Genie saves you both time and energy. Another fine product by Shiny Things Inc.
The science of rubbish compression has come leaps and bounds since the old "crush can on head" approach.

StinkSmasher flattens the competition!

Gagmia Simore "RefuseNik" Trash CompactorEdit
Eliminate unnecessary trips to the curbside can, and turn your stinky kitchen debris into high-density, easy-to-toss stinky kitchen debris, with this space age trash compactor from Gagmia Simore. Remember: "If it's not a RefuseNik, it's just plain trash."
Gravitrash by Jackson CompactionEdit
Mechanically compacting trash is so last century. Our new model applies angular accelerations to a superconductor, creating a small gravitomagnetic field. This gravity pulls the trash downwards, minimizing size 3 times as effectively as traditional compactors (at a mere 32 times the electricity consumption).
The Garbage Ninja is a mythic figure, leaping from house to house, expertly slicing garbage into small pieces before moving on to its next task. What was once a somewhat disgusting childhood figure has been turned into a very real trash compactor by Kitchensations. And while the real Garbage Ninja does not leap, it certainly does crush."
The Sims 3Edit

Model AA-23 Trash Compactor by Arasika IndustriesEdit
Garbage, food scraps, and slimy parasites alike are crushed into small indistinguishable blocks. These blocks can be thrown out, used as doorstops or jettisoned into outer space.
Trash compactors in The Sims are standalone appliances. The surface of a trash compactor will not be used for food preparation, but objects can be placed on it.
Due to the way objects work in The Sims, recolors of Maxis objects are separate objects. Therefore, recolors of Maxis trash compactors may have prices that are different from the originals.
The Sims 2Edit
In The Sims 2, trash compactors must be placed under a regular counter; they cannot be placed under an island-style counter. The moveobjects cheat is not required for this. A trash compactor can be used if there is only one free space in front of it, but cannot be repaired unless there are at least two free spaces in front of it. In Open for Business a CleanBot will not empty a trash compactor.
The Sims 3Edit
In The Sims 3, trash compactors do not need to be placed under a counter, but they can be.
