Looking for 55 gallon drums

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.

Thanks to all, found good food grade 55 gallon poly drums for $20.
