Galvanized Wash Tub

Yesterday my husband and I hauled a load of scrap metal to the recycling center. When we went inside to pick up our earnings, we were surprised to see that they had items for sale in the lobby. Metal shelving, vintage gas cans, tools and the big galvanized wash tub that you see above.

And the prices were crazy good. They were only asking $3 for the wash tub (and it’s a biggie). So, basically, it looks like they’re rescuing usable items from the scrap bin, and selling them at their scrap value. Pretty cool.

It always made me a little sad to think about the things that were getting melted down just because someone needed the cash, so I love that they’re doing this. And being a bargain-loving kind of girl, it looks like I’ll be stopping by the recycling center more often.

  1. What do you plan to use this tub for? I’m always inspired by your posts. I especially love the Christmas under $100 post! Will you be doing another one of those again?

    1. Hi Maureen. I haven’t decided what I’ll use the tub for yet. I’ve planted in them. I’ve raised baby chicks in them. I’ve used them to serve drinks at parties. They’re just a good useful item. This is the biggest one that I’ve ever owned.

      I may do another Christmas under $100 post this year. I’m already off to a great start 🙂
