so I'm a first time homebuyer moving in in 2 short weeks. And the place is is move in condition. one thing that bothers me, though, is the trash compactor. I didn't even know they made them anymore. I have no idea how to use one, what the dos and don'ts are, and I'm seriously considering removing it and putting something else (cabinet, bookshelf, recycling bins?) there.
any pros for keeping this would be appreciated as would any suggests at to what should replace it.
