    My boyfriend works for a grading company. We got ours from the garage. They had the blue barrels that held hydraulic oil and soap...
    But I also see them in the Iwanna from time to time (Iwanna.com --if you don't have the paper).

    Like I mention before, I have access to a few of them in PA. I wouldn't know how to ship those bad boys. 55 gallon blue barrels. Great for feed storage.

    I would go to you local tortilla factory or places in that nature and ask there usually thrown in the back of the place. I bet theyll be glad to get rid of 'em. usually bout 5-10 bux a peice. Its even nicer when the lid is still intact. If not, no worry.

    I was able to find some barrels on craigslist for dirt cheap. It was going @ 5 bucks a piece.

    Check any local car wash...I get them from there, they usually throw them out daily as they use a barrel which was filled with soap.

    Doesn't hurt to dumpster dive once in a while. Fish/meat markets and eateries tend not to care if you take thier boxes, barrels or crates
