    Just buy a large plastic trash can with lid. Fill it over half and count the bags. Put a scoop on top and bill them for what they use. thats what I did at a retail store and it works well.

    I just use five gallon buckets. The home depot ones are cheap, and already painted orange. Matching lids are available, and highly recommended.

    I would personally go with the trash can idea. More incognito
