Former IBC Tote contents
IBC tote Container versatile and may be used in many applications, both personal and business. Containers may be used for the containment of water, glue, fertilizer, pesticides and most chemicals. They have even been used for rain barrels and as a water basin for livestock or to irrigate plants. For these reasons and others, it is important when you decide to buy a used container to understand its earlier contents as well as our intended use for it.
- Unknown Content
When a container is marked unknown, it indicates that despite our efforts, we cannot determine precisely what the container previously held. This if completely discussed before sale.
Typically a label describing the container will reveal the contents previously held within it. Paints, pesticides, chemicals and other possible hazardous contents not meant for food applications will be clearly labeled as such.
Contents that were previously of food-grade do not mean that any residuals may make new contents safe for human consumption. It simply means that the former contents were of food-grade quality and may sometimes be fully sanitized
