Smile  55 gal. plastic drums/barrels
I'm looking for blue plastic 55 gal drums for some planting projects & rain water catch. I could use about 10 of them and 2 of the white food grade. I found some on Craigslist near me, but they wanted $20 per barrel, I'm hoping to find them a little cheaper. I can do cash, or cash & silver.

There's a guy here in North East that sells them. I'll check his prices next time I'm up that way.

If the concept of heading on down to the local Home Depot and transforming $100 worth of random pipe bits into a killing machine doesn’t appeal to you, you’re a frikkin' pansy. Also, you’re probably sane and will live significantly longer than I will.

are those the white drums that have four latches that hold down the tops?

FYI----the dunkin donuts in Havre De Grace makes the donuts for some of the other locations in Cecil and Harford counties.

I had a sort of conversation with the HDG manager and I think we can get free food grade 5gal. buckets from them. I'm almost 100% sure he said it was cool. I could only understand about every third word he said.

I plan on stopping by soon, I'm just not over there much and the bridge is murder if there's any traffic.

Thanks to Streetgang for this tip, He suggested donut shops as a free source of 5gal. buckets some time ago.
