IBC tanks

Recommended Posts

I know a few people on here use ibc cages for logs and like me diagonally cut the tanks for roofs, but one tank is 2 roofs and when you start stackin you need even less of them leaving more tanks spare!


What do you do with the excess?


Any cool uses for them?


I’ve got rid of a few to gardeners etc but they’re building up n I want em gone or a use for em any ideas?

Thanks in advance, John

Symbolically drown effigies in them.

Edit: Probably insufficiently transparent for full effect.

Set fire to them and practice native American smoke signalling. Failing that,Is the plastic used to make them recyclable? If so, finding the nearest recycling centre that will accept them is your best bet, before they become pollution by being more unused plastic waste.

While I’d never claim to be the greenest of people I don’t think 60/70 ibc s blazin awaysignally the county would be the best advert for my business!
Do the toilet thing already!
Depends what the effigies of, but prob not
I like the idea of raising ships tho!
I expect the recycling may depend on what’s been in em?

Sell them in dry spells for water storage (no idea how people support them but not my problem)

Had a wildlife place buy them for making poultry houses
