Free barrels from car wash

Found this interesting post on the Frugal Gardening Forum:

Sounds exactly like the 55-gallon barrels that some folks are using for flow-thru worm systems.

Between free barrels from a car wash, free coffee grounds from Starbucks, and free old veggies from the health food store, we could have some very happy worms.

Here is a link that might be useful: Free rain-compost barrels from your local car wash!

Careful with the coffee grounds. I was bringing home grounds from work for my worm bin, and after a couple of weeks it started smelling like ammonia. This was only with one or two pots worth of used grounds every other day. I was still putting in cardboard and whatnot as well.

Now, I only put work grounds in once every other week. The rest go somewhere else around the house.
