The Rubbermaid Commercial Products Vented Slim Jim Trash Can Waste Receptacle, 16 Gallon, is crafted to make waste management compliance easier and reduce strain on workers. Constructed of high quality, commercial-grade materials, these trash cans feature 4 venting channels that make removing garbage bags up to 60% easier than traditional straight wall receptacles. By allowing air to flow into the can, liners can be pulled more easily from the garbage can which reduces strain on staff and increases efficiency. 4 bag cinches around the rib-strengthened reinforced rim create quick, knot-free liner changes. Sturdy handles and molded base grips make transporting and emptying contents more ergonomical while the step design prevents jamming when containers are nested. The Vented Slim Jim waste receptacle is designed for superior durability and maximum efficiency.
It is a great counter height and depth, and bottom heavy enough to keep it really stable.
One thing to consider is trash bag options. Since it has a 33″ perimeter opening, we need to buy a pretty large trash bag.
There is also a defect in one side. No scratches as others have mentioned but there is a bulge, like a golf ball was in the mold with half of it sticking into the sides leaving a semi circle that will not go away. If it wasn’t such a hassle to take to ship I would exchange it.
I cleared out space in the lower half of a tall kitchen cabinet and bought two Slim Jims, a black one for garbage and the blue one for recycling. Together, they fit perfectly in the space.
Lots of thoughtful features: handles, bag vents, slits to anchor bags, etc. Very well designed. And they fit 30 gallon bags perfectly. When you fold the top of that size bag around the top, it’s easy, but hugs so it will stay put. One of my biggest gripes with cans is how often they don’t work with standard bag sizes. These do. They are built to last and solve a common space issue.
I also recommend buying the top. It’s a little pricey, but rounds out a great product.
PS: A couple people here left one star reviews because they felt the ad was misleading. They expected to receive four. I can only guess a former version of Amazon’s page gave that impression, or they both misread it similarly (or they were both from 1 really angry person leaving reviews under different names:)…doesn’t matter. Those ads were about squabbles with Amazon and not about the quality of the item. The product itself is great. So understand you are only getting one for the price and ignore the comments.

The shipping of the 7 bins I ordered was a bit ridiculous EACH recycling bin came in it’s very own box with packing paper and it’s very own individual invoice!!!??? all arriving on the same truck, on the same day (sorry ups guy for taking up all the space in you truck) I’m trying to get people to recycle and I have a living room full of packaging (counterintuitive) anyway the product itself gets all the thumbs up in my book!
the information that I would like to leave you with is this…
after receiving all 7 of my fancy blue vented handle slim jim 23 gallon recycling bins I realized that I still needed one more (I know, ridiculous) and because I needed it quickly I decided to stop in at my local home depot even though I was expecting to pay way more than I did here on amazon… lo and behold, I’m not sure if it was a sell or what but the same exact product SAME EXACT THING 30% cheaper than what I paid. I was kicking myself all the way home.
moral, don’t be lazy and think that all the best prices are able to be seen online. had I just gone down the dang street I could have saved over a hundred bones…

We seem to generate more recycling stuff than we do refuse. Have a good sized bin and good bags is making our live easier.
