    We had to find a small trash can that could fit under a stainless prep table. We only had about 12" and this was exactly what we were looking for. It is made out of a nice thick plastic that won't bend and distort over time. We will be purchasing more of these in the near future.
    I love my slim jim trash cans they work great for those tight spaces where you need a trash can and they slide just a little bit under your stainless steel counter great deal thanks guys
    I love these cans with their swinging lids (buy separately). I originally bought them in 2011 for my daughter's dance studio (the matching lid works very efficiently while hiding the contents from her dance customers) and ended up bringing one home to use in my own kitchen. They are old-school Rubbermaid; three years later, they still look and work great!
    Great product, fast shipping. We order these quite frequently for our restaurants and they have good value for the price point. Easily cleaned and stored.
    We needed larger than what you can find at your local hardware store and these fit the bill perfect, not to large and not to small!
    You get what you pay for. Getting a trash can of this style from any other manufacture than Rubbermaid is literally throwing your cash in the trash.
    Trash cans can tend to be pretty ugly but this Rubbermaid wall hugger is beautiful! It is built for heavy use and can withstand a beating!!!
