Plastic Drums

McManus Drum Company, Inc. has been a distributor of cost-effective containers, drums, and industrial products to clients across the Southeastern U.S. since 1965. As part of our extensive catalog, we offer quality heavy-duty plastic drums in 5 to 95-gallon capacities. Our heavy-duty plastic drums come in open-head and closed-head configurations, as well as new and reconditioned options.

Heavy-Duty Plastic Drum Explained

Our heavy-duty plastic drums offer a robust storage solution made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for optimal durability and reliability. They are available in numerous sizes, with the most popular being 55 gallons, 30 gallons, and 15 gallons.

These drums are constructed to withstand the harshest conditions and are resistant to impact and weather. They can be used for the storage and transport of both hazardous and non-hazardous materials, and some options meet FDA requirements for storing food-grade products.

We offer heavy-duty plastic drums in two main varieties: open-head (removable top) and closed-head (sealed top with fittings). Our open-head drums allow for convenient access to the drum’s contents, making them well-suited for materials requiring frequent addition or removal. Common industries that utilize these drums include manufacturing, industrial, and food and beverage.

Heavy-Duty Plastic Drum Benefits

Our heavy-duty plastic drums are manufactured in the United States and built with fully recyclable materials. Other advantages include:

  • Lightweight: Heavy-duty plastic drums are lighter than those made from metal and other heavier materials. This makes them easier and safer to transport.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Unlike certain metal drums, HDPE drums are durable and impervious to corrosion and rust.
  • Versatility: Heavy-duty plastic drums are available in various sizes, ranging from 5 to 95 gallons, to handle different types and quantities of material.

McManus Drum Company, Inc. offers heavy-duty plastic drums in numerous options, including:

  • Closed-head plastic drums: Our closed-head plastic drums are made with HDPE, making them much lighter in weight than steel drums. These drums meet UN specifications for storing hazardous liquids.

They meet all UN specifications for storing hazardous solid materials, and the molded HDPE construction provides optimal impact resistance.
