Surplus Plastic Barrels Provide Low-Cost Storage
Surplus 60-gal. olive barrels can be used to provide low-cost storage, says a California company that buys them up, rinses them out, and then puts them up for sale.
  We recently spotted an advertisement in Mother Earth News for the barrels, which are made from food grade plastic and painted gray. According to the company, the barrels have been used only once. They weigh 18 lbs. apiece and have built-in handles that make them easy to carry. The entire 22-in. dia. top lid can be unscrewed. Or, you can keep the lid on and use a 2-in. dia. bunge hole located in the center of the lid.
  "There a lot of ways you can use these barrels. For example, they can be used for food or water storage, or as planters, composting bins, water troughs, animal feeders, etc. A hand pump can be installed in the bunge hole," says the company .
  The barrels sell for $25 apiece plus S&H.
