    That's very nice of you I went to buy a 55 gal drum to use as a burn barrel and they didn't have any they told me that many companies are now charging deposits on them. I have looked in several places and still haven't found any

    Very cool. CA is just a little far for this one LOL 
  5. Well, don't give me too much credit on that point. These drums are actually a problem for me. I go through thousands of gallons of printing ink a month. The ink company will come get them but it's not worth them making a trip until I have a large quantity of them. That takes up too much of my floor space. I tried scrapping them out but scrap yards won't take them.

    Look for packaging companies in your area. Every major metro area has them. They all buy ink in 55 gallon drums.
  6. I called our local oil distributor and got quoted $40.00 for a brand new drum with a lid. If you have not tried your local oil company/distributor, give them a call.

    Are the drums still free and available? If so where are you located? I'm just across the river in Memphis.

  11. the scrap yards here will only take barrels if there cut open so when people ask if they'll take them they usually say no, or is the ink the problem. with the price of scrap right now u could also try the local scrap monkeys (the guys in crap trucks driving around picking up scrap all day) just trying to throw ideas to get shop space back good luck
  12. Thanks Clyde, I'll check into that.

    grn935oh, I sent you a PM with my cell number.

    If the price to ship one wasn't too expensive I'd be willing to pay the shipping on one.  Any body know how much it would cost to ship one?
