HARTFORD, Wis., February 8, 2012 – As homeowners become more environmentally conscious, they are looking for ways to update the home to make their lives easier and more eco-friendly. BROAN® offers a full line of trash compactors that reduce the volume of trash produced, compacting up to six 13-gallon trash bags into one. Homeowners can eliminate multiple trips to the curb or garage while reducing their footprint in landfills.
"Now available with new easy-to-use features and accessories, BROAN Trash Compactors provide a cost savings for consumers who pay by the load, and they reduce transportation costs for the garbage collection companies," says Richard Palmersheim, Group VP Marketing, BROAN.
