    Rubbermaid brute is the best you can get IMO.

    I bought them at Home Depot in Providence, RI. Not every Home Depot carries them. Then inner city one did because of the demand.

    You may have to look around.

    Yep. You can run over them and they just spring back like new. almost indestructable.

    drill a coupe holes in the bottom in case you don't dump them right away and they fill up with water.
