BROAN Elite XE and BROAN Elite trash compactors take convenience, hygiene and style to a new level. But beautiful lines, rich finishes and automatic cycling features are just part of the story. Inside is a clean compartment, a crushing mechanism with 3,000 pounds of continual force, electronic controls, and odor reduction systems. But what you take outside is what really makes a difference. BROAN helps reduce your waste volume by 75%, and while that’s fewer steps to the garage, it’s also less volume at the curb, and a smaller bundle in the truck that hauls it away. And that’s when it all makes sense: If everybody reduced volume, fewer trips would be needed to the landfill, which means less fuel, less traffic, and a cleaner environment all the way around. Who would have thought it all started under the kitchen sink?
