With VCB there isn't an option to enable compression.

The only available option is "compact" mode (-F) that remove the "unused" space.

Hi!

May be an experimental support, still you could give it a try on ghettoVCB.sh script written by William Lam :

it hasn't got a compressing option. it will remove unused space, but keep in mind only if the blocks have not been used before or have been zeroed out.
