Buy Used Plastic Barrels


Typically, the best recycled barrel options come from food and beverage processors, shipping companies, or local distributors who have made collecting these barrels from other companies a part of their business.

Because of the size and volume of these recycled plastic barrels, they are very bulky and expensive to ship a great distance. As such, it is usually not cost-effective to buy recycled plastic barrels unless you can go and pick them up. (Of course, it depends upon the source; some companies get the barrels nearly free so they can afford to pay the shipping cost and still make money!)

Based in Bennington Vermont, our customers come from as far away as Pennsylvania to pick up their barrels. Barrels are an efficient storage solution for bulk goods such as fuel, sap, water, feed, scrap, compost, etc. By repurposing a used food-grade barrel you are insuring that the container is safe, free from chemical residue, and durable enough to keep anything safe.

Recycled barrels have a variety of uses that range from storage to building. Keep seed and feed safe from mice. Start a compost bin for your garden. Collect rain water and save at the tap. Barrels also make a convenient place to keep your cleaning or sports gear. Watertight plastic barrels can even be used for floatation devices on docks. Anything and everything can be placed into a barrel and sealed for protection until needed. They stack easily and can be grouped together to support even more storage on top of them. By using barrels you can effectively expand your household or businesses storage area.

Different barrels lend themselves to different uses. Steel barrels (or steel drums) are good for fuel and heavy storage, such as scrap wood or metal or your workspace tools. Stand your brooms, rakes, and shovels upright and secure in the corner of your garage. Or designate a space for your kids' sports gear, bats, sticks, and padding. Plastic barrels are perfect for storing liquids or dry goods such as seed and feed, sap, etc. Any open head plastic barrel can easily become an extra garbage or recycling can, and any closed barrel can become the ideal composter.

Plastic barrels also lend themselves to some very useful specialized jobs. Some of our plastic barrels have been outfitted for use as Rain Barrels, with screened inlets and valve outlets. These rain barrels are great for saving a little money while staying very green. Rain water is great for gardening or for washing the car without drawing too much on the tap. Closed head plastic barrels are also excellent for floats to attach to docks. It's as simple as lashing them to the underside of your dock frame and pushing it out into open water.

All of our barrels were used in the food industry and do not contain any toxins or hazardous residue. Our barrels average about 2 feet wide by 3 feet tall. Sorry, we do not ship our barrels. We look forward to seeing you when you come to collect your order. To learn more about ordering check out the details on or Order/Contact page. Be sure to ask about the availability of the particular barrels you are ordering, not all barrels will always be in stock.

Plastic barrels will keep your goods secure for long periods of time without breaking down. If you need to keep items in your warehouse or storage shed for months or even years on end, such as drinking water or cleaning products, plastic barrels will get the job done.

Before you purchase your first used plastic barrel, make sure plastic is the right choice for your products. Metal barrels are great for oil and other hazardous materials, including flammable items. Fiberboard drums can be used for consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, glue and paint. Plastic is better suited for liquids and some dry goods. Open head drums are best for liquids, while tight head drums are better for solid goods.

Rain barrels are containers used to collect rain water from the roof of a building via the gutter and downspout. The downspout is cut to a height tha
