Anything
placed in the unit will
be crushed or compacted.
Keep the compactor
locked when it’s not in use. Remove the key knob to a safe place.
Always place glass bottles, etc., on their sides in the center of the drawer so the wastepaper below and beside the bottle can help keep broken glass near the center of the bag,

other sharp objects in the bag can cause injury.

bag by the folded top or a bag carrier. Watch out for
glass that may have cut through
the bag sides.
