Where to get drums for WVO

Anyone know good sources for getting 20- 35 gallon drums to use for filtering system for WVO.
I found 55 's but they are too big to get home....

15's and 30's are the only "normal" sizes I know of. Janitorial supplies usually come in them. Car wash chemicals come in those sizes as well, but many buy chemicals in the 55 size. So, janitors, car washes, and detail shops are all good places to ask.

backseat?

a 55-gallon plastic drum fit right in the backseat of my 84 300SD... not sure if they're smaller somehow than the steel ones, or if your body style is a bit smaller. I thought of using 40-gallon rubbermaid garbage cans before I got some free steel drums from my in-laws (they delivered).

Both metal and plastic 55-gal ones will fit fine in the backseat of an SD, but not in the trunk. I'd assume that a 30gal or smaller would fit in the trunk easily. I bet pool supply places and places with big pools also have empty containers of the 5-30gal variety, as many pool chemicals come in containers this size.
