I bought two plastic trash barrels, seemed to be very rugged, $12 each.
They stood up to everything during the summer but they became brittle in
cold weather. The trash pickup people toss them on the ground after
emptying them and that was enough to shatter the top half of both of
them. Any suggestions on what to buy that will stay somewhat flexible in
cold weather? Brand name? Type of plastic? What should I look for?
Within reason, I'm not concerned about price. No HD or Lowes in this
area, only Ace and True Value.
Yes, I have one that is over 20 years old. Has one crack in the top
rim (been there at least 10 years without spreading) and a crack in
the bottom. Keep meaning to drill a couple holes in the bottom so rain
will drain out.
I've had good luck with Rubbermaids trash containers.
