Reliable sources of plastic buckets
Tonight I stopped into both our local Baskin-Robbins and the Denny's down the street from it. The lady at Baskin-Robbins said they don't ever have any plastic buckets -- all the ice cream comes in those cardboard buckets you see in the case. The manager at Denny's said they don't throw away plastic food service buckets anymore (hey, at least that's good news, conservation-wise).
But I need some buckets (so I can go collect coffee grounds from the local coffee places, hee hee). Where have you personally found to be a reliable source of the darn things, because I'm obviously barking up the wrong tree here. Places I can find along my main drag in town would be best, because I don't really have time or gas to go searching for contractors or wholesale plants.
Our solid refuse center (read: dump) is a complete no-go, because they crush everything and forbid scavenging.
