Hi all! Does anyone have some ideas or plans for a home made trash compactor? What I am thinking of is a hydraulic (water from the hose) compactor made of pcv pipe. I would put my 32 gallon trash can under it, turn on the water and it would push a cylinder with a plate attached to it down, I saw something like this at a summer camp I worked at many years ago. The main problem I have right now is how to make my own cylinder.
