Metal Drums

We offer three drum styles: Metal Storage DrumsPlastic Barrels, and Fiber Drums. Drums and/or barrels are used to hold a variety of materials.  Reconditioned barrels and drums come in several different sizes, but the metal drum is excellent for safely shipping and storing both liquids and solids. This drum style typically has a rating of either UN or non-UN. Choose from open head or tight head drums.


  • Food Grade: Drums or barrels have contained some form of food substance in them. The content could have been anything from wines to oils. Typically safe for water storage or aquaponics systems.
  • Non-Food Grade: Drums or barrels most likely contained chemicals of some sort in them. Because of possible hazardous chemicals, these totes are not safe for certain applications.
  • Rinsed & Cleaned: Used drums where the interior and exteriors have been washed and rinsed using hot water, detergent or solvent.
  • UN Rated: A set of standards governed by the United Nations to regulate shipping and storing hazardous materials. A UN Rating indicates and shows what a container is regulated to handle.
