LID OPTIONS for Audubon Recycling & Trash Receptacles

All Audubon Recyclers and Trash Receptacles are built with 16-gauge 304 brushed stainless steel lids attached with full-length 304 SS hinges.  Below are our standard lid options.  Custom lid openings may be ordered for a small upcharge and longer lead time.  For outdoor installations, we passivate the stainless steel lid to remove impurities that may cause rust over time.

Standard labels are silkscreened in Metallic Copper epoxy automotive paint and, with proper care, will last for many years.  For heavy-use applications, or if there may be a need to change labels in the future, we offer optional Replaceable Etched Nameplates made from brushed 304 stainless steel with baked epoxy paint to replace the silkscreened labels.

Created for a California school with feisty squirrels - For outdoor applications where squirrels or other critters get into the trash bins or heavy rain is common, we offer an 18-gauge, passivated 304 stainless steel cover mounted on a full-length hinge with a stainless steel bar-pull handle.

Audubon Double Recycling Bin with Weather Cover

We have found that the most effective way to clean and protect our stainless steel lids is with Sheila Shine stainless polish (available at most Ace Hardware stores) and a soft cloth. If the lids are especially dirty, or have dried spots of coffee or sodas, wash with mild soap and water.  Dry thoroughly, then polish with Sheila Shine and a soft cloth.  Sheila Shine should be applied, then wiped off with a clean cloth.  Do not leave excess polish on the lid, or it will attact dirt.
NOTE: For lids with silkscreened labels, you may wipe the lid with denatured alcohol, but DO NOT USE MEK, Lacquer Thinner, Paint Stripper, or ammonia-based products such as Windex, or you may remove the painted label. (Top of Page)
   - To replace faded silkscreened labels, first wipe lid with MEK solvent, Laquer Thinner, or gel Paint Stripper on a soft cloth to remove all remnants of paint.  You may need to let the solvent sit on the area to be removed for a few minutes. Next, wipe clean lid with Denatured Alcohol on a soft cloth to remove all solvent.  
   - If lid has scratches or shadows of the silkscreen that need to be removed, use Random Orbital Sander with 3M Series SC-DH 5" Blue Aluminum Oxide Very Fine pad to buff the surface of the lid until you've created a uniform surface.  (If scratches are very deep, you can start with 120 grit sanding pads, then finish with Very Fine.)
   - Wipe again with Denatured Alcohol, then carefully position nameplates where you wish to apply them (mark location with tape, parallel to the edge).  Remove paper from back of nameplate, and press into place, rolling from one edge to the other so it adheres evenly. Nameplates are not easily removable once applied, and the adhesive will be destroyed when removed.
   - To remove and replace existing nameplates, take a length of monofilament line (fishing line) and slide it under the edge of the nameplate.  Pull between the back of the nameplate and the lid to detach the adhesive.  Replace with new nameplate as described above.  (Top of Page)
