Joe - and any one else looking for buckets:

Chinese restaurants get duck sauce in 5 gallon buckets. I kid you not - 
saw one behind the counter of a take-out joint, asked for it, and it was 
mine. Food grade, white, red lettering (in Chinese.) Don't know how many 
you can collect this way, but it is one source that few others will 
think of.

Dumpster diving at nurseries - I've gotten sturdy black plastic 15 
gallon tree / shrub pots that I use for hauling weeds, moving mulch, 
etc. Handles tend to fatigue after a while, so my husband pop-rivets a 
piece of thin aluminum sheet to reinforce where it cracks.

Judy in NJ where nights are getting cool (below 50° Fahrenheit) and the 
first of the bananas has come indoors for the winter. Good thing we have 
tall ceilings.
