I purchased this rash can when I purchased my first house. As other reviews have mentioned, the lid is the problem. After only a month of use the lid would not operate properly and wound up getting thrown out by the trash men. It was probably an accident, but I wouldn't have blamed them even if they'd done it intentionally, since this trash can design must be a huge pain in the butt for them. Anyway, I continued to use it for an additional two years, without a lid. A few weeks ago, after a major rain storm, I went to throw a bag into the can and noticed thousands of maggots crawling around the inside of the can because the rain had created a perfect home for them inside this terribly designed trash can. My advice: DON'T BUY IT!! Spend another $20 and get a properly designed trash can.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by FeartheBeard Nice can but had to modify post for lid
I had to cut a 1/8 X 3/8 groove to keep lid from unhinging itself from can. So far it has worked.

The can is mediocre. The squirrels seem to find the plastic especially tasty so they eat through it immediately. Use only if the can is kept indoors at all times.

Im the kind that looks for good things to say about people and things. That said I have one of the little carts we are discussing. The other reviewers had issues with the lid and I agree. The hinged lid is tricky and comes detached from time to time. Other than that, the cart is lightweight and easy to use. It sits in hot afternoon sun which has not phased it so far. It was never intended for rough commercial use. My big Toter is more commercial made with thick plastic and good wheels and more money. The little Rubbermaid is good for lightweight household use. Rubbermaid makes all kinds of carts for every use...Bishop Tom

I bought 2 of these cans to save money compared to some of the heavier duty trashcans based on the rubbermaid name. Lids constantly fall off, and the plastic that holds the lid on gets chewed off in very little time so the lids will never actually stay on again. Every time trash was picked up the lids fell off, and now my trash man threw the lids away on me (presumably because they fell off into the truck while tossing the contents and he didn't want to retrieve them). Rubbermaid wants $20 for a new lid when the entire can cost around $30 new.
