An auger compactor is a tool used for drilling, boring, and compacting materials in construction and waste management applications. Augers are typically composed of a rotating helical blade, or screw, that moves materials through a confined space, such as a wall, pipe, or other enclosed area. Waste augers are commonly used in Australia to move loose material, such as soil, through a confined space, as well as to compact and densify material such as asphalt, trash, and other waste materials.

Augers come in a variety of sizes, with the most common being the hand-held varieties used for digging, such as post hole diggers. These hand-held augers are typically powered by a motor, such as an electric motor, and are designed to bore through soil and other materials. Larger augers, such as tractor-mounted augers, are designed for larger, more intensive jobs, such as drilling through asphalt or compacting large amounts of material.
