Food grade plastic drums

I'm looking for food grade plastic drums. Anyone have any or know where I can get them? I'm going to be using them to collect maple sap to make syurp. Thanks in advance.

Most drums in barns came with herbicides in them. Not sure I'd touch any barrel from a barn.

Re: Food grade plastic drums

yeah I would steer away from any drums that you dont know exactly where they came from. I used to get drums from my uncle who worked at hershey to use for wine making but have made heavy duty garbage cans out of them all by now since I've given up on the wine. If you know anyone who works at any type of food manufacturer they might have a lead for you that would be better suited for what you want/need

I happened to just run across this link on craigslist, not sure, but it might do. It says they held soap.

Check out any local soda bottling plant, they get soda syrup in drums.

Re: Food grade plastic drums

We got ours that we use for the same purpose from a local water authority................they sadi rinse them out and they would be fine...........they had some type of very mild acid in them, that they use as an anti corrosive
