  • I had my 18 gallon Rubbermaid containers for the last 30 years. I’ve probably only had two out of 125 crack. I’ve had purple for Halloween, Brown for Thanksgiving ,green for Christmas,pink for Easter.,etc. I stack at least six on top of each other and have them all lined up on one side of the garage, best things they ever invented!!!
