    LESCO, that is the place to buy them, you have one in your area should be around $40-50. Really good, bottoms wear out in about two or three years though. Just my two cents

    try lesco or shemins nurseries. also, home depot sold them last year although I don't remember seeing them this year.

    I set my crews up with 44 gal. rubbermaid cans now from HD. The gray heavy duty ones. they last alot longer because of a very strong bottom, cost about $40 instead of $60+ for the green ones. 44 gal. seems to be the right size, especially with these wet leaves and debris. Depot also has 32 gal. which I also bought. They are decent and alittle cheaper.

    I have been using 32 gallon (I believe) cans from Wal-Mart for several years. They are the somewhat flexible ones, not the blow-molded type that crack. They've been pretty durable, and for like $9, they're a pretty good deal. I've used the Brute model before, but they cost about 4 times as much and they have a bad habit of "walking off".

    What are the trash cans for? I use a Lawn Funnel, way better than a trash can,IMO anyway.
