Default For Sale - 5 gallon food grade buckets

Awesome deal I found on craigslist for people in or around southern New Hampshire, upper Massachusetts!

Guy has over 300 food grade buckets selling for .50 cents each or a buck with lid. (Think it is from a Chinese restaurant so no pickles )

sams club, bj's bakery will give them to you for free, have sweet smell from icing, but if you clean and sanitize and air them out, they work great to store your grain etc in.
just saying....

I've heard that.. but for me has remained only myth with "wtf?" responses and hangups. All around my area. think most commercial places already have a regiment in place to deal with buckets so they don't have hundreds laying around.. Sams club really? Well hell i'll pay $1.50 for a 5 gallon food grade bucket.

I believe if it has a recycle code of 1 or 2, it is considered food grade.

I think it's more complicated than this. I've had commercial food come in #5 and #7 before and I doubt they'd put food in non-food grade plastic.

a regiment?

I think a battalion would be enough to do the job.

I'm with you on this one. The last Port-o-John I was in was stamped #2 recyclable. That shows that lots of plastic can be #2.

Grain storage should be fine in a 5 or 7 plastic. Long term food storage is where 1 or 2 makes sense. It won't leech chemicals into your food and will keep air out the best. Got that from the ol' Internet.
