A trash compactor to control odors

The Undercounter Trash Compactor from Maytag doesn't just compact your trash -- it keeps odors to a minimum.

The 15-Inch Trash Compactor Maytag

Dealing with kitchen trash can be a major hassle. Not only do you have to take care of the trash itself, but the smell can be a whole different problem. The 15-Inch Undercounter Trash Compactor from Maytag can handle both issues, though. It can reduce the volume of your trash by as much as 80 percent, making it easier to get out to the curb. The compactor also has a fan with a built-in charcoal filter to handle odors and keep your kitchen smelling fresh. It even has a QuietSeries sound insulation system to minimize the noise the compactor makes. The compactor is safe to use even in a house with small children; it requires a removable key to compact anything.

The 15-Inch Undercounter Trash Compactor is made from steel, with a zinc-coated interior that offers durable compacting and minimal cleanup. It's available with a stainless-steel front, as well as other options that can be matched to Maytag appliances. Maytag also offers several options for liners for the compactor, including both plastic and paper bags, which can be ordered online to avoid needing to find the specially designed liners in stores.
