Looking for 55 gallon drums

actechs(z6 NY)September 12, 2004

I'm looking for 55 gallon drums, preferably with tops that can be removed. I am in the Poughkeepsie area. I would need 2 or 3 for next season, I plan on using them to store water for my gardens.

Thanks in advance,

There is a place near upper Pleasant Valley, possibly near Pine Plains, that sells used barrels that have been recycled for a reasonable price like $10 - $15 each.
Their phone number is 518-398-7842.

Are you predicting a dry summer next year??? LOL!!

Good luck,

Why not use sturdy black plastic garbage pails?? They have lids and cost about $5.00 to $15.00 depending on the thickness of the plastic.. You could check Walmart. I use them for my horse feed. It works for me and cheeper than what they sell in the feed store.
