Customer Questions & Answers

What is the number of this PVC material? I am worried about chemical leaching from the PVC

Asked by: Dan
If the number is "2" then you're good. The best type of plastic for use in long-term food storage is high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is indicated by the "2" symbol.

Customer Reviews

5 Gal. Black Plastic Bucket with Handle (3-Pack) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading: Not food storage grade I ordered a bunch of these based on the description that they were food storage grade. However, what I received are Encore 57640 buckets, which does match the model number given on the website description. I looked up Encore's 57640 buckets, and these are Encore Plastic's economy grade, are made from regrind material, and are not FDA approved for food storage. They are made of HDPE with the number 2 in the recycle symbol, which is the same material used in food storage buckets, but HDPE alone does not mean that it is food storage safe. The orange Home Depot buckets are also made of HDPE and are in fact sturdier than these buckets. So these buckets are overpriced for what they are. They are also smaller than other buckets (probably around 4.5 gallons).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 gallon bucket Nice heavy duty bucket. What messed me up with the description was it mentioned drain hole. I wanted to use it for hydroponics and didn't want drain holes. There are NO drain holes! It's just a black bucket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Gal. Black Bucket with Handle Very nice bucket for planting trees. The trees have more room in these buckets and grow better. The dirt stays moist longer also. Buckets are good for planting Tomatoes also.
