55 gallon steel drum price

OK, hopefully someone can give me some advise. I want to start low tech with my equipment. What is a good price to pay for clean 55 gallon drums? I will move up to some better equipment once I get the hang of this but I don't want to put alot of $ into it right now. I am having a hard enough time finding someone local to get the oil from, restaurants are paid here when it is picked up. On e-bay you can get drums for $15 but the shipping is double or triple that. I ran an ad in the local paper and have had calls but no one will ask a price, they all ask what I am willing to pay.

If you want me to I can get you a quote to ship them directly to your door through my company. I would have to band them to a skid. The drums are free. You could just send me some $$$ via PayPal or something to cover shipping cost and I would ship them to you.

These drums are brand new and previously had steel shot in them. We empty the entire 55 gallon drum into our Shot Blast machine and then trry to recycle as many drums as possible.


Let me know how many you need and what zip code they are going to.

I can fit 4 to a pallet - I have never heard of your cook off but watch the FOOD TV all the time, may have seen it.

Tell me when it is and I'll come down and join ya. Me and the betr half can bring the camper, hang out for the weekend, eat some good food and depending on when you need the drums, make you one heck of a deal : .


Send me a PM -

Hello,
I am new to the site and a new diesel owner. I have been wanting a diesel for a long time and finally got one last week. I am wanting to try the biodiesel processor out also. I live in Lexington, KY. I'd be interest in a couple of barrels and any help.
Thanks.
