I live out in the country in Texas and we have different people who sale both metal 55 gal drums and plastic 55 gal drums for $10-$15. Look in the country around where you live.

For barrels with more friendly contents, try car washes, restaurants with soda machines, and stores that sell bulk olives.

. A lot of them are recycled nowadays, but try plants, factories, &c. They frequently get lubricants in barrels.

I'd say that any freight yard, train yard, or best of all dock, would be your best bet. Some storage facilities or warehouse districts would be a great place to start. Be aware though that many of the barrels were used to store substances which are less than friendly to humans, so any project using these barrels needs to be carefully considered before implementing. If you do manage to find a good cache maybe throw up where you found it, I'm sure you're not the only one who's looking. Good luck!
