    Hey guys,
    i am looking for the chaeapest salt storage boxes to put at the doors of my office buildings and plaza's. I am hoping to find a "real box" and not anything like the Rubbermaid tubs...These salt bins seem so expensive for a piece of plastic...any leads would be great, Going for a more professional look rather than buckets or tubs ..if I can afford them.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    You pretty much answered your own question unfortunately. You get what you pay for. Look in to buying them bulk. We buy 10 at a time for $85 a piece. Anything under a hundred is considered cheap IMO.

    The guy who manufactures them is 20 minutes from my house and owns outdoor supplies. They are $130/piece and I hate the blue color.
