Sorry, looks like LA... theyre not that heavy so shipping might not be too bad. Uline is just a packaging distributor - Ill check the actual manufacturer later and maybe someone else stocks them.

If you want free then by all means go the other routes suggested. If you want new and cheap.... $8.29 for bucket and lid. There are occasionally coupon codes.

No need to get the gamma lid, actually I suggest against it if you are fermenting in there. It would be very difficult to clean under the ring for the lid.

Yeah agreed- I wouldnt use a gamma lid on a fermenter. That pic is just of some bulk grain storage buckets. However an integral screw top beats a snap lid in my book for ease.

Just looked and mine are made by M&M Industries, out of chattanooga, TN. It appears yhey have distributors other than U-line.

OT but I also stumbled across this - 11.3 gallon square-ish container. Its probably too small for 10g batches but I think it would hold a full sack of grain.

And yes, it appears they sell the same bucket as a med waste bucket as well. I don't suggest digging those out of landfills for free fermenters.
