Recycled Water Containers

Your containers must have water-tight lids and not leak. Minimum container size is five (5) gallons. Maximum load is 300 gallons, but you can return as often as you like. If you arrive with a container that holds more than 300 gallons, you will only be allowed to take 300 gallons.

Be Aware: Water Is Heavy!

One gallon of water weighs over 8 pounds; 100 gallons weighs 833 pounds. Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your vehicle or trailer. Overloading vehicles is unsafe and could cause a traffic accident. When driving a heavily loaded vehicle, be sure to allow enough stopping distance. Your containers must be secured for safe transport.
