"Open the pressure maintenance hatch on unit number— Where are we? 3263827!"
―Luke Skywalker[src]

Garbage masher 3263827 was a garbage compactor for recyclable waste[2] aboard the Galactic Empire's DS-1 platform, better known as the Death Star.


"One thing's for sure. We're all gonna be a lot thinner!"
―Han Solo[src]

Leia, Han, Chewbacca and Luke shortly before the garbage masher was activated.

In 0 BBY, upon freeing Princess Leia Organa from the Death Star's Detention Level, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker were temporarily stranded inside garbage masher 3263827, along with the princess. Owing to their armor and weapons, garbage chute sensors believed that they were recyclable waste.[2] They were then attacked by a carnivorous dianoga, and they nearly died when masher's walls started to close in order to compress the waste it contained. However, Skywalker's droids C-3PO and R2-D2, who had remained behind in safety, managed to disable all garbage compactors on the Detention Level of the Death Star, thus saving the rescue team from a gruesome death.[1]
