I bought my 2 recycle cans first because i could not believe the lods were almost twice as much as the cans themselves. Finally gave in and bought these lids they snap on for a snug fit and hold the liner in place. Extremely durable very happy with the purchase. They open easily and also snap shut. Very minimal rounded on top so no water will puddle.
Sits on top of container- does not snap on.
Good quality; my wife and i just didn’t like the way it looked on our new slim jim trash can. It is way too top-heavy to look pleasing, so we sent it back. Your tastes may vary, of course.
Main/1st image for product is not what you actually get. 1st/main & last image shows a lid with swinging doors on both sides. However all of the other images show the product that you will actually get: a lid with a diagonal line insert for paper and a circle hole in the middle of the lines for bottles & cans. Gave 3 stars only because this is the item i really wanted when i was shopping for lids for my blue slim jim recycling container. For the life of me i could not fine a blue colored lid with the diagonal/circle hole combo, but i could find it in every other color available. So by default i elected to go with this blue lid (with dual swinging doors) as a last resort. And for once in my life, i was happy to see the wrong product was delivered. So for everyone else who really wants the lid with two swinging doors, do not buy this product. For everyone who wants the diagonal/circle hole combo lid, this is the product for youcrazy.
Top fits rubbermaid commercial slim jim recycling container with venting channels, plastic, 23 gallons, blue (354007be) to prompt people to put the right items in the bin.
This accessory lid fit perfectly on my slim jim trash can. I appreciate the style and placement that my can fits in my kitchen. It’s tough and will work well for you although i think the flapping opening could jam in a public situation. I needed a large can for a small kitchen and this lid compliments the can it fits. I highly recommend this lid if you want to complete the ultimate combination of can and lid. Update:11/03/17this lid has proven to be everything i needed. Easy to clean, it functions as described and i am very satisfied with its construction. I only noticed jamming when the can is full. Well common sense tells you then to change the bag. I appreciate the usefulness it provides and i do recommend this product.
So i waited to review and after two months of use i can tell you this thing is made for pain. I’ve run in to and knocked it off, i have basically thrown it, in all my gracefulness, while changing the trash and despite having cement floors it hasn’t even flinched. The color has distorted slightly, from the sun or the trash itself, but that is it. So pretty darn pleased with it.
These lids matches the color of our trash cans exactly. They have two doors that fold down when you push on them and pop back up when you remove you hand. They do a good job of hiding what’s inside. Their design is unobtrusive like the rubbermaid slim jim trash bins they are made to fit. The only negative that i can offer is that the doors are plastic and noisy when they close. We’re going to put some clear bumpers on them to dampen the noise. All in all, we are pleased with them.
- Perfect fit, works perfectly and I like how it looks.
- Aesthetic & sturdy with minor issues
- Good lid, maybe best in non kitchen environment.

Top cracked within three months of use in our kitchen (very light use). That’s ridiculous for something that cost $30+ and is meant for commercial use. Update: i contacted rubbermaid and sent them a picture of the crack and they quickly sent out a new lid at no charge. The crack shouldn’t have happened, but it appears that rubbermaid stands behind their product. I’ll bump them from two to three stars for doing the replacement.
I love this lid for my recycling container. I previously had a stack of 5 open bins. I ordered a new recycling container that this lid goes to and am so happy that most of what i recycle fits through the single-stream opening (meaning that we don’t have to sort our recycling anymore–the garbage company does that. ) it also hides the contents and makes our recycling area inside the house look 100 times better.
Expensive cover for your slim jim trash can. That being said it fits over the can very well when you have a trash bag in the container. Its very sturdy and should last a lifetime. I think this is a better choice than the lids that swing. I saw a lot of bad reviews for the swinging lids, which turned my decision this way. It definitely keep the smell down. I do believe that is was money well spent.
Good quality lid for commercial can, mine came broken and did not close by itself out of the box. I had to take the one side off and noticed the metal rod inside was not locked into place. I snapped it into place and reassembled and works fine now. We run a licensed daycare from our home so i wanted a good constructed trash can with lid to fit in a small spot, this fitsperfectly but on second thought cause of the way the lid opens not the best for the kitchen. Lid requires frequent cleaning from food getting scraped off plates onto it, but is easy to clean.
I ordered two of these for my middle school classroom to help my students quickly and easily identify the correct place to put their recyclables. The lids have made a huge difference. Before the lids, there was as much trash as recycling in the recycle ♻️ bins. Now, i rarely find trash in the recycling. As a bonus, the lid greatly improves the aesthetics of the recycling area.
I ordered two of these for my middle school classroom to help improve the aesthetics of my space and encourage students to place trash in the appropriate location. It has helped in both cases. The lid is generally sturdy. Unfortunately, one of the sides came loose on one and it took several minutes and some creativity to get the metal rods back in place to restore it back to working order. As mentioned in some other reviews, the swinging lid sometimes gets caught on the plastic can liner.
Sturdy and heavier than i expected. Doors get stuck on my bulky trash bag. I tried the smaller trash bag but it was too small. I’ll keep shopping until i find the right size bag for the can. I’m buying two more for my house. We are thinking of buying more for back yard bbq’s.
I’m not sure why the slim jim trash can’s don’t come with lids so i had to order these separately. I put the trash cans in our church kitchen which can end up having stuff in them for multiple days before being emptied so we wanted lids. These snap in and hinge on one side so they can be flipped up each time or just flip them all the way over to leave the container open.
Works great after being used a lot. Only issue is when it arrived, one of the flaps didn’t go back into place after being pushed down. It still doesn’t bounce back up all the time after someone puts trash thru it but it’s only that one flap.
This perfectly fits the rubbermaid slim jim garbage cans found locally. The slit in this lid easily fits all paper products and the circle fits most cans and jars. The hole is not large enough to fit 2 liter bottles but is quite large. I just wish there were markings on the lid with the recycling symbol for those who do not recognize blue as recycling.
I use these for the top of my recycling center bins (slim jims) at home and use a chalk marker to label the top. They go on solidly and allow bag changes over the top as well as clean up easily.
This lid was delivered to us with the “weight” bars loose in the lid flaps – which led to the flaps not closing after items were pushed in the trash. If you flip the lid upside down and you can see two metal bars moving around, they are loose – and need to be pushed to the outer edges of the lid where they will snap into plastic clips molded into the lid flaps. Hope this helps anyone who receives the lid in the condition we did (without the weight bars clipped into position).
This is the lid to my favorite slim line kitchen trash can. The can holds a large outdoor trash bag so i don’t have to take the trash out as often as most people. This lid is very convenient too because it keeps the food hidden and i don’t have to step on a can to open it and wait for the lid to rise up.
It fits the can i have and keeps my guests from mixing recycle and regular trash. I think it is overpriced for what it is but the market for this product is very small and they can charge what they want. Since there are not a ton of options out there i had to go with this product, at least it is a solid useful item.
We purchased a ‘scratch and dent’ copy from amazon warehouse at a considerable discount. The lid is sturdy, sits firmly in place when in use, and is easily removed and re-installed. It sits on top of the trashcan liner, so it must be removed and re-installed with each change of the liner. If your can liner is only a few inches larger than the can, this lid will also hold the liner firmly in place.
The plastic came a little jagged at one location, but it’s on the underside of the lip and i don’t think it will impair the overall function. As many reviewers noted, one of the metal hinge rods on my lid was out of place. After about 20 minutes of trying to get it back in place and only succeeding on one side, i finally used a shower curtain hook to loop through the back and pop the bar in place completely. Any kind of s hook should help you get the pressure you need to pop it back into place. Both sides work as intended now. Definitely would expect better quality when the lid costs as much as it does, but at least it was fixable.
This container is ‘attractive’ as containers go and is very well made. The design is very functional, easy to use and remove contents and cleans easliy. I feel the price is far greater than it should be probably be.
Works well but the spring tension could be higher. We have another rubbermaid commercial lid in a square shape and the resistance is very nice and high which helps keep it closed. This one gets stuck very easily and remains open. For the price i’d expect the tension to be better suited for the task.
Unfortunately both lids came with bars that help lid swing closed dislodged. Did not realize they were even there until one fell out. Had to take lid apart to get bars in place. Disappointing considering the cost of lids. Concerned they will dislodge again after a while. Happened with both black and tan lids purchased.
It makes no sense why the lid for a recycling bin costs more than the can. However, this one works great, i don’t want an opening that bugs can get in so the one’s with a round hole or slot were out. This one hinges and is easy to open and close. Why can’t this be available in blue?.
For the most part, this lid is great. It covers the rubbermaid slim jim garbage cans perfectly. My complaint rests with the flaps not always closing. At times, it gets caught on the garbage bag and at others it seems like the weights aren’t strong enough to close them. A slight tap on the side gets them to close and these garbage cans fit nicely in tight spaces.
