I'll wash as many as I can and reuse later.

If I'm in oil, they get trashed. If I'm in a high rise where I typically don't have access to a utility sink they get trashed. And if its the end of a long day and I'm lazy, they get trashed.

I buy a lot of buckets.

That's two pallets worth.

I used to buy mine by the pallet from a manufacturer here and I'd usually pick up about four pallets at a time. Got a great rate per bucket doing it that way at the time. Until the pricing crept up and it was just plain cheaper to go to HD and get a Homer bucket for $2.60 per.

We save ours then send out a small ad in the rural paper and the farmers pick them up for feed buckets. I can usually get rid of all of them this way. I can't count how many jobs doing that has got me. Something to think about doing for you rural painters.

I use the plastic pull tab strip , put it between the buckets so they don't get sucked together. I only keep 5-10 buckets though.

I got a trick and can separate any buckets that are stuck
