Recycling Bin Lid Refinishing
Instructions and Video


   - 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)
