Barrel Sand and Salt Containers

Where can I find barrel sized sand containers to leave along a 1000 foot driveway?

anything packaged tends to be more expensive than bulk.

Snow-Ex makes boxes especially designed for this purpose, but I'd go with Rubbermaid

How about a plastic 55 gallon drum with the end half exposed and then put on a frame?

I tried the Rubbermaid containers once - the heavy ones, and they cracked and broke. After that, as they expanded out, I couldn't get the lids on.

As crazy as this sounds, talk to a local place that sells olives. They buy them in 55gal plastic containers w/a screw on/off lid.
