Food Grade Buckets - NW

Can anyone point me in the right direction, to obtain, for free (if possible!), food grade buckets. Looking to store Mylar bagged food within the buckets.

I'm located in the NW and regularly travel around the Preston / Salford areas.

resealable food grade containers can often be sourced from places like Fast Food diners MCDs, Burger King etc even your local chinese or asian take away they will have held stuff like Mayonaisse, Ketchup, Sauces etc, sometimes rice. oddly enough the last ones I blagged came from the local secondary school and hospital canteens.
Preppers willingly embrace the benefits of modern technology, but we aint daft enough to rely upon it.

Swimming in at your local one ( if you have one ) they have great plastic containers with screw on tops, if you are packing in Mylar these will be fine ...a good tip is take a bag of tea bags offer them as a partex , you will get plenty, at least i did !
The ability to laugh at yourself while you learn is a great attribute.

Make friends with someone in the pub trade. Most pubs now serve food and items like mayo, oil, etc come in big tubs that get thrown out. Offer to take them and you can pick them up regularly. I also have a friend who runs a launderette and he gets lots of washing powder in tubs that I use for non foodstuff storage.

There is a place in Warrington that sells boxes and containers on eBay. I've bought a few boxes for them for more robust storage.
