    Default FF: Blue Plastic 55 gallon Drums

    I'm pretty sure they are the same as these for sale at uline

    Formerly held car wash soaps and chemicals, so NOT suitable for drinking water and probably not good for rain barrels without a hell of a lot of rinsing. I know I wouldn't use these for watering my vegetable garden anyway.

    Originally came with two screw-on small lids, but I suspect most of those are missing, so don't count on it.

    There are at least two, and possibly up to five that I can get my hands on. these are FREE for a beyonder who will be able to meet me during an evening (8:30-ish PM) at my place of work (close to Acclaim Calgary Airport Hotel) sometime in mid-September. No jerkoffs who won't show up please. I'm just trying to make sure these get used for something cool instead of sending them into the dumpster.

    PM me, let me know how many you want, and we'll work things out over the next few weeks.

    I have a bunch of unpainted pallets too.

    I also have 25-30 of the blue CHEP pallets too, I heard they are worth money, but, i have no idea how to collect.

    Plastic? I might take some off your hands if you are looking to get rid of them.

    Probably best to ensure that they're not chemically treated wood as well - the heat treated yellow pine pallets are great for fire pits.

    Found some more of these. Currently have at least three of the WHITE available and may be able to get more of the BLUE as well.

    Have been asked about using them as rain barrels. Since they were used to store concentrated chemicals, I personally wouldn't use them to water vegetables or any food. Should be fine for flowers or shrubs after some rinsing.

    Also still have pallets for pick up. They look untreated, but again, wouldn't suggest using them for cooking fires.
