Rubbermaid FG269288 Slim Jim Bottle and Can Recycling Top – Tall slender trash can lid

It is a lid that specifically fits without better options but is extremely overpriced and cheaply made. I very rarely write poor review (never) but this deserves the mediocre three stars.

Top fits rubbermaid commercial slim jim recycling container with venting. 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.

Stays on and covers completely. Stays on nicely and covers completely so i can keep my recycle bin outside. It is hard to remove when changing the bag, so i just drape the bag over the top. Here are the specifications for the Rubbermaid FG269288 Slim Jim Bottle and Can Recycling Top:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Fits your Rubbermaid Commercial Untouchable square recycling bins
  • Ultraviolet stabilizer minimizes discoloring and fading
  • High Density polyethylene is strong and resists moisture
  • Color-coded tops encourage separation of recyclables
  • Measures 11-1/4″ x 20-14″

This lid adds more verticle space inside the trash can, however the opening usually does not close although it’s suppose to. I may have to make the hinge holes bigger so that the flaps will swing closed. Overall i give it 4 stars, because it fits the tall slender trash can well and adds more space inside the can.

The lids seem a little weird. They just sort of ‘perch’ atopthe containers. I have them where they won’t get knocked over, but if they did i would expect that the lids wouldbreak. A word to the wise: the lids are also a bit noisy when used. If container is in ear shot of someone sleeping,wait til the person wakes up to put trash in.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great product, once I fixed it
  • Takes a licking and keeps on ticking
  • expensive but useful

This top to the rubbermaid slim jim recycling container cost almost as much as the container itself. But without the 2-holed top, people tend to put garbage in the container mixed with recyclables. There was enough room to put an ‘aluminum cans only’ sign and tape it to the space between the holes. The top fits loosely on the slim jim. I would prefer a more snug fit. The dimensions of the container and top were just right for the space alloted, so i grudgingly paid the asking price for this.

Some reviewers wrote that the trash can liner prevents the flaps from returning to the closed position. That is true, but i also found that with the right liner, and taking a few seconds to press the liner to the side of the trash can solved the problem for me. It is sturdy (and expensive). I have found that step-on trash cans break after a few years. This looks like it will last for many years.

I find it exceptionally useful in holding the clear plastic bag in place. I purchased this item to use with the container. I find it exceptionally useful in holding the clear plastic bag in place, and looks much nicer than having an open container. Since i keep it outside on my deck, i cover it with a large plastic garbage bag to prevent water entering the container when it rains. I would recommend this product.

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.

Garbage stops it from closing. It works well enough but with the narrow opening; once it’s filled to the top, garbage stops it from closing. We have to constantly push the garbage down so we can use the entire bin. However, we did get it for it’s narrow fit in our business and to keep bugs from getting in and out. Again, it works well enough but a lot of food gets on the flaps when guests are pushing their food in which then of course attracts flies.

They go on solidly and allow bag changes over the top as well as clean up easily. . 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.

Great lidholds the bag in place so it will never fall down into the can like other trash canswish it was no so expensive.

Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. 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.

Wish they were clearly marked. These lids fit perfectly on the slim jim cans. I wish they had marking on them to remind people that they are for cans and bottles. The sticker kit is far too expensive and difficult to find.

Trash can flaps malfunction. I purchased this item for work. It fit okay on top of the rubbermaid trash can. The issue i have is the door flaps get stuck and never close properly.

Great lids, just wish they snapped on instead of just sitting there. If you have dogs who like to get in the trash, you might to try to work something out with a bungee cord or something.

This is exactly what i expected. This is exactly what i expected. Was back-ordered so took a little longer to get here. So far i have not experienced any of the issues that have been mentioned in other reviews.
