We want to reuse 5L tubs – can you help?

Hello lovely people! We’ve got a new scheme in mind, and we’re looking for a regular supply of clean 5 litre (or thereabouts) lidded plastic containers to make it happen. Can you help?

Selection of empty 5L lidded buckets
These are exactly the sort of things we’re looking for!

These are the kind of buckets you get in catering – they might have held ice cream, yoghurt, mayonnaise, popcorn, biscuits, curry sauce, fondant icing, or even pickled eggs! We honestly don’t mind what they were used for – and whether they’re round or square, but we’d really like to take them off your hands and give them a new life!

Square shaped empty 5L lidded tubs
Round or square – we don’t mind!

If you work in a company where you’re regularly getting rid of these, please contact us on incrediblesurplus.collect@gmail.com so we can work out how we can take these off your hands. Recycling is good for the planet – but reuse is even better! #SharingIsCaring!

Buckets with logos
So long as they’re clean, we don’t mind what was in them!

  1. Hi Steven

    Thank you for the info which I have circulated. I just wanted to know whether you would be interested in approx 100 wooden chairs non stackable local Church needs the space?

    Many thanks

  2. A few odd ones odd sizes. Probably 6 if can find all lids. Can drop at Kings Heath incredible surplus. Interested.
    Have had good 5litre ones in the past from Curry Houses. Would be worth a try.
