A garbage compactor (or trash compactor) was a chamber used to store and compress refuse. The walls would come together and compress and crush the garbage. The doors to the compactors were usually magsealed.
They were attacked by a dianoga, which were known to live in garbage compactors. Luke was almost killed when the dianoga took him underwater.
