Rubbermaid Commercial Slim Jim Front Step-On Dual Liner Trash Can/Recycler : Love the look and quality of the can

Beautiful, functional trash can – beware of the confusing product description. The “trash liner only” model does not have a hard plastic bin – it’s designed for garbage bags. The “trash/ recycling combo liner” comes with two separate plastic bins, one black, one blue (see photo). They are sold separately as: rubbermaid commercial dual liner set for slim jim metal step-on wastebasket, dual liner for front-step wastebaskets, 8-gallon, black/blue (1902006). The two bins in the 8-gallon model have a 7×8 inch opening at the top, which is not really enough for recyclables because it fills up quickly with a half-gallon of milk, etc. If you want a single hard plastic bin, order a separate rubbermaid commercial replacement rigid liner for slim jim stainless steel front step-on wastebasket, for front-step containers, 8-gallon, (1900697). The single bin will last for a week of (single-stream) recyclables in our house. We were considering the 24 gallon size, but that would have been ginormous in a small kitchen. 8 gallon is the perfect size (with about the same foot print as the 4 gallon).

Alert if wanting to use the “duel” separator for recycle/garbage. This review is more about the pricing and item description on the website not being clear enough to “me”. The product images shows the capability to separate recyclables and garbage by using “optional duel-stream ridged liners”. My assumption on this was that these came with the product and they were “optional to use”, not “optional to purchase”, especially as my last garbage can had this function. Essentially, i just spent almost $390 on a garbage can as i needed to purchase the additional plastic liners at $100. I feel this description should be very clear they are not included by an alert posted on the product. I already thought it was overpriced, but ultimately i can’t find something similar and don’t want to go through the return process. Up to you to weigh that value if you are looking for that same function, but here is a tip: if you really want the split liner function save yourself $50 and order them together at least.

Works great, looks nice in kitchen. Heavy duty construction and metal. Can’t say anything bad about it.

I have purchased 6, 6 no touch, automatic trash bins from many different manufacturers and ever single one lasted no more than a year, some less than a year. Frustrated with the waste of money and the poor quality i decided to forgo the automatic bins and purchase a peddle bin. I scouted out possibilities and found this one to my liking. The bin is big and made beautifully. The pedal is wide and easily lifts the quiet lid. It gives you ample room to dump rubbish and then closes quietly. I am so pleased with the look, size and construction of this beautiful bin.

  • What all garbage cans aspire to become!
  • Sturdy, sleek, beautiful and huge!
  • Why did I wait so long?

It is very nice quality and very sturdy. It is very nice quality and very sturdy. However, i cannot give the last star because the bag is not as easy to put in and take out like i think it should be. But i would still recommend it.

It’s huge and great quality.

Awesome piece of equipment for a family of eight. It came with a price but leave no doubt it does the job.

Big, substantial, well made. Very heavy, which is perfect, since we bought this to replace smaller recycle and trash bins that the dogs would knock over. I really don’t see them getting into this, unless they work as a team with one on the foot pedal and the other jumping up. If you have a small kitchen, this will look out of place, because it is very big. I also should let you know that the lid is heavy, so a fair amount of force is needed on the foot pedal to open. Not a big deal, and actually great for our purposes.

Awesome look and great large size.

This product are all over the place but i love mine. Looks amazing and is very well made. The reviews on this product are all over the place but i love mine. Looks amazing and is very well made. I opted for the larger one and i’m glad i did, now i can be lazy and not deal with recycling for a couple extra weeks. Mine is equipped with two separate removable bins for emptying. My kitchen has a built in trash can so i only use this for recycling.

Why did i wait so long to buy this?. We have a lot of parties and everyone is always asking for the garbage can. It has always been under the sink, like in most homes. We bought this to put at the end of our kitchen island to give guest better access to the garbage can. It looks nice not out of place and is well built. It is the perfect size for our garbage liners, no more folding and tucking. It has made a huge difference in the functionality of our kitchen.

Slim jim is perfect size and utility. I was worried this would be too big, but “slim jim” was the perfect fit. When people see that it holds garbage and recyclables they are amazed.

We use 13 gal bags in each side which have some extra room. The two liners came with it.

And it is a perfect fit in the space and for what i. Shipped and arrived promptly, unit was as described, and it is a perfect fit in the space and for what i need.

Could use a little more style.

13 gal bags are skin tight and they do not attach like the drawing shows nor do any 13 gal bags. It is a quality can and as all rubbermaid commercial products you get no manuals instructions nor guides. The spec say 13 gallon and the drawing on the can show how to put the bags on. Now the facts, 13 gal bags are skin tight and they do not attach like the drawing shows nor do any 13 gal bags fit. My advice is to buy 23 gal bags.

For years, i have bought step-on trash cans that were trash. They’d cost anywhere from $30 to $80, and would last a year, maybe two. When i saw this on amazon, i at first thought, no effen way am i spending $175 for a kitchen can. After reading many of the reviews, i figured it if would last as long as suggested, it might be worth it. I figured if it were as poor quality as the others, i could return it. This can is quality, as expected of the rubbermaid name. It feels very durable, from the easy and wide opening operation to the smooth, quiet closing. The sheet metal is a thicker gauge than others i have owned, which adds weight and stability.
