That should work.

Where are your worms? Wet bin could be a sign of too little airflow.

Adding bread crumbs or dry cardboard, newspaper etc. and leaving the top open for a few days will help dry things out.
FYI....I live in a high humidity area and always had problems with wetness with a rubbermaid tote. I have since gone to a wood (cedar) stacking bin and have much better success.
