Keeping Waste Local: Need a Garbage Can?

Lotioncrafter cans

ORS was recently approached by Lotioncrafter, one of our awesome local companies, about what to do with the excess 55 gallon steel drums they have as a by-product of their business. They are beautiful barrels, brand-new, with painted exteriors. Seemed a shame to crush, ship off-island, and recycle them (they are worth about $0.25 each as scrap steel). Then the Lotioncrafter team came up with a great idea. They bought a special tool that cuts off the top (like a can opener) and looked online and found all kinds of great garbage lids designed to fit on top!

If you are interested in one of these barrels, lotion crafters will cut the top off and give you the barrel free! For more info, email us at info@exchangeorcas.org and we will hook you up!
