The Justrite galvanized steel oily waste safety can has a foot-operated, self-closing lid and a ventilated bottom for disposal of fabric soaked with solvents, thinners, and other flammable liquids. The self-closing lid opens no more than 60 degrees and closes tightly to restrict oxygen flow inside the can, helping to prevent spontaneous combustion of flammable waste. The can's round shape and ventilated, elevated bottom allow air to circulate around the can to disperse heat, and minimize moisture buildup and rust. The foot-operated treadle-style pedal provides hands-free opening, the carrying handle allows the can to be moved easily, and exterior reinforcing ribs protect against dents. The can has a powder paint finish to help prevent rust and wear. It has a reflective trilingual warning label with the legend “Empty Every Night” in English, Spanish, and French. The Justrite galvanized steel oily waste safety can meets Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and is certified by FM Global (FM) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The manufacturer provides a 10-year warranty against defects in parts or workmanship.

This is the smallest model oily waste can with a foot-operated cover that Just Rite makes. It's slightly larger than a 5-gallon bucket, which makes it a good choice for the homeowner or business with small quantities of oily rags to dispose of.
Press your foot on the pedal and the lid opens about 60 degrees. Remove you foot and it closes immediately, and stays closed when not in use. Although it doesn't have an air-tight seal (for obvious reasons), it blocks rag smells and fumes from permeating your workshop. I.e., you only smell the rags when the lid is open.
Overall build quality is first rate. The sheet-metal is strong and the powder-coat paint is well done.
When using the steel loop handle to carry the can, the lid stays shut. The can's top and lid are rolled steel for strength.
This heavy duty galvanized can is designed to be a safe container for oily rags. It's also ideal for cloth or paper rags damp with oil, paint thinner, turpentine, oil-based stains, oil-based paint, alcohol, kerosene, diesel fuel, gasoline, or any other flammable liquid.
Justrite sells identical cans in either red or yellow, in case you want to segregate materials or to differentiate a location site. Or, maybe you prefer one color over the other.
spontaneous combustion; noun: Self-ignition of combustible material such as oily rags, through chemical action (as oxidation) of its constituents, also called spontaneous ignition.
If rags self-ignited inside the closed can, the fire would quickly extinguish when the oxygen is consumed. The inside bottom of the receptacle is several inches above the can's bottom, so heat can't make contact with the floor.Read more ›
This trash can for oily rags was one of the first things that firefighters said would have saved both homes. It's designed to contain a fire within it's self. So long as nothing flammable is near it. I figure $50 for a trash can is worth it, compared to a few hundred K for a new house, and the loss of a pet. This along with a fire resistant cabinet, plastic curtains for spark containment, and a combustible gas alarm have made my house safer, while allowing me to work on my projects with peace of mind. The can works great, and though nothing in it has combusted to date, I know that if something does, it wont spread to the rest of the house.

I throw my dirty oil painting rags in here but still worry about them catching fire since it says that can still happen in the can. But it's better than not having a can!Published 12 days ago by Elizabeth P. Bordelon
This is great, a must for any artists studio. It's big, has a solid build and the foot pedal is firmly connected and responsive.Published 1 month ago by Interpreterboy
