Since we are using these for litter waste that even odor block bags can't contain the odor of for long, these loose gapped lids are just gonna end up making smell seep out of can even with the activated odor absorber thingie i taped to bottom of lid. Still i like these so going to try and find some rubber seal or something to make them more tight.
Oh... and I'd imagine it works perfectly well for ashes, too ;)
The lid does NOT fit tightly and is definitely not airtight. Like a lot of people, I bought this when I was looking for something for pet-related use -- to temporarily hold used cat litter, in my case. It's enormously easier, faster, and cleaner to scoop litter into a container that holds the bag open, and this is almost perfect for that as-is.
I modified mine to have an airtight seal simply by cutting a length of old round extension cord to fit just under the rolled metal rim around the outside top of the can. Hot glue holds it firmly in place, but lots of adhesives would work. The lid now fits snugly enough so that you can lift the can using the handle on the lid, although I wouldn't trust this if the can's half-full of litter, and you wouldn't need to. Odors do not escape.
The can should be made with the lid fitting more tightly, but it's pretty terrific once you modify the lid like this. You could also put foam rubber on the upper inside of the lid, say, but it could be contaminated by the contents.
Otherwise, yes, this is basically a normal galvanized trash can except smaller. It's sturdy, seems durable, easy to clean. It's not watertight, either, although that's not difficult to fix. We spraypainted ours white, and the paint stuck well. Magnets will stick well to this can, too. Frankly, if you're of a mind, there are a million potential uses.
After a week, someone stole it. *That's how awesome this can is.* It was a can for poop, and someone decided they WANTED it.
I never even got around to painting "FOR POOP" on the lid, which was my intention.
I might order another one, but 25 bucks is a bit steep for a poopbin that might get ripped off, anyway. Next time I'll chain it to a tree, or something.
