I can get as a regular and ongoing situation, 10 litre plastic containers with good fitting lids, highly useful as syrup containers, easy to carry and handle light enough to shake the syrup within and good for pouring. I am starting to collect them whenever I see any on the plastics waste pile at the farms I visit, so if any of you want some for next years feeding please let me know. I do a fair bit of travelling around so may be able to help with collecting too.

25 litre containers are bulky and cumbersome to handle but I can also get those too.

Please pm me if you are interested.

I work on livestock farms, so they often have had chemicals in.........but before you panic I'm talking dairy wash chemicals and such like, so often it is food grade plastic............but having said that I wouldn't recommend putting a food for humans product in them. Syrup for your bees would be fine, but not storing your honey.............
