|Folks, we have a minor problem with people pushing the condo compactor Stop button in and leaving it in. |
While it's OK to push the Stop button in to stop the compactor from cycling while you open the door, leaving the button pushed in keeps the compactor from cycling until it is pulled back out again and sometimes the trash in the compactor fills to overflowing before someone finally pulls the Stop button out.
That said, you can help prevent the compactor from overflowing by doing one of two things.
The easiest is to not use the Stop button since opening the door also stops the compactor. But we will never get everyone to understand this.
And that's where you come in. If you are at the compactor and you see the Stop button is pushed in, just pull it out before you leave.
