Basement Workshoppe

I live in a flood zone, and have to be prepared for water seeping up through the basement floor. When I built my workbench, I put the legs in 5 gallon plastic buckets for protection and trash.

    Ok ....5 gallon buckets for trash but under the legs ? how do you empty them.
    I put a hook on the end so the bucket is half under the bench and mark the top....brush between the lines ...into the bucket and lift off the hook and into the outside can. but that's just me :-)
