Try fast food chains. They usually get them full of pickles.

I was just thinking of the same thing prowall. My folks ran a restaurant for several years and we stockpiled quite a few pickle buckets. It takes awhile to get rid of the smell.. but otherwise just like any other 5 gallon bucket

If you live near a large bakery, you could probably get a lot of them there.

I get most of mine from the drywall guys, just wash out the remaining mud stuff and it's a nice bucket. I have gotten some from the fast food places when I see them stacked up out back also.

Hey, I'm always looking for buckets. I think a lot of other people are too, most of the local restaurants charge for them now.
