I've got half a dozen old steel chemical barrels (they were used to ship
Roundup) that have been rinsed out. I'd like to cut the top out of two
or three of them to organize scrap metal. Wrought, aluminum, cast
aluminum, and copper. Sure I could just make piles outside, but
technically we do have an ugly ordinance int he county were I live.
I've never had a complaint, but if I ever did I i'd spend a motnth
hauling toting and stacking as it is now. I don't want to push my luck.
now. I don't want ot leave those barrels inside, and I don't want
them to fill with water. I was wondering if there is a cheap metal
(plastic will sun rot) lid I could put on them to keep the rain out if
we get an unusual amount of rain.
The other option is to slice the barrels just below center of the top
most reinforcing ridge so they can be their own lids, but that gives
them much less capacity.
