If you’re looking for a new garbage can and enjoy the idea of a compactor then this is the one for you. The Reduce Smash Can runs about $170 and is available from HSN, Brookstone and Amazon. The garbage can holds a pretty good size bag, 40L/10.5 Gallon
There is a heavy-duty step to open the lid incase your hands are not free. When closing the lid has a little resistance, which makes for a silent closure. The coolest part of this garbage can is with a little elbow grease you can compact the garbage to fit more. The crazy part is it actually works!
