Just Rite 09100 - 6 Gallon Oily Waste Can

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.

Being an avid hobbyist in carpentry, metalworking, and RC-Planes, I can pretty much build, or repair anything that comes my way. My shop continues to grow, but unlike my high school shop, it didn't have too many safety features. Oily rags went in the trash, sparks from a grinder or welder had no curtain to retain them, and all of my flammable paints, chemicals, and solvents were piled up under a shelf. Then I got news that one of my close friends house had burnt down. His brother was refinishing a door and threw the linseed oil soaked rags in the trash when he was done. They spontaneously combusted, and 60% of the house was lost in 25 minutes. A few months later, a coworkers neighbor had a similar tragedy when varnish soaked rags used to refinish a deck, combusted in the garage. Cans of flammable solvents and paints exploded like gunfire. Their cars left burning in the driveway. The house was a total loss, as well as the family cat.

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.

This is one of the best Safety Cans for Oily Waste I have seen. I have been a fireman and I have seen what oily rags can do if not properly disposed of. This can is just the answer. It will not allow a fire to start and your garage will be safe.

Sturdy metal can. Easy to open hands free with its foot pedal. Top drops down to cover can and keeps solvent fumes contained. It does not seal tightly, but when closed looks like it would squelch a fire. Bottom is raised a couple of inches off the floor which I like in case the contents combust. 6 gallon size is plenty large enough for my painting studio.

This flammable rag storage can is well built and should be very durable. I used these back in the late 1960's in shop class. This well designed container takes the fear out where to put oily or solvent soaked rags while awaiting the weekly trash pick-up.

Great for the oil soaked rags especially linseed oil, which has been know to cause fires if left damp on your workbench.

Good quality. Does exactly what its supposed to do. I have no complaints and would definitely recommend this product. The only thing I would change if I could - and this is NOT a complaint, its a personal preference - would to be to make it slightly narrower and slightly taller while retaining the 14 gal size.
