Trash compactors are large appliances used for the disposal of garbage, and hold more than normal indoor garbage cans. However, unlike garbage cans, they will eventually break down and need to be repaired.[TS1][TS2]

The Sims[edit | edit source]

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 science of rubbish compression has come leaps and bounds since the old "crush can on head" approach. Thin-skulled Sims need a safer and more convenient way to throw their rubbish problems away - and that's where the StinkSmasher 20X6 comes into play! 2 cubic feet of pure trash-pulverizing power, with a screw-driven battering ram that delivers over 2 tons of compression force per square inch. StinkSmasher flattens the competition!

The Sims 2[edit | edit source]

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.

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 3[edit | edit source]

In The Sims 3, trash compactors do not need to be placed under a counter, but they can be.
