I have designed buildings that had garbage chutes that emptied into a crusher. However, the crusher did not operate immediately when something was dropped in. In fact, I think most of the garbage crushers require manual operation and have several safeties on them.

ETA: See http://www.safetynewsalert.com/emplo...age-compactor/ for an example of a real fatality in a garbage crusher and the safety interlocks required.
