The present disclosure relates to a dust container (1) connector plate (3) for a vacuum cleaner, the dust container comprising a dust bag (5) and the connector plate (3), surrounding an opening (9) in the dust bag. The connector plate positions the opening (9) within a vacuum cleaner by being inserted in a holder thereof, and comprises a central portion (11) surrounding the opening, and an extending portion (13) projecting from the central portion. The connector plate further comprises a shutter (21) made in one piece with the connector plate, the shutter being slidable to cover the opening (9). The shutter is connected to the central portion (11) at the side of the extending portion. Thereby, the shutter can shut the opening by being slid away from the extending portion, which provides the option that the dust bag can be closed without the connector plate being moved within the vacuum cleaner holder.
