Home trash compactors were big in the late 80s and early 90s, but wore off due to their impractical nature. The Self-Powered Trash Compactor is essentially an everyday flip lid garbage bin – this makes it practical – but rocks an expandable lid that when pressed by hand serves as a trash compactor. This means no more dirty shoes or severed fingers from an open tuna can lid. Even better, you’ll cut down on your trips to the garbage and do your green part by using less trash bags. You can grab one for $139.
