Sustainable and Reusable
IBCs and 55 Gallon Drums
Reduce Carbon Footprint
At Mitchell Container Services, Inc., we pride ourselves on the sustainability and low carbon footprint of our reusable industrial packaging. We specialize in Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) and 55-gallon steel and plastic drums. Our goal is to support the industry with sustainable IBC’s and 55 Gallon Drums.
IBCs and 55-gallon drums are reusable and engineered specifically for industrial use, transportation, and storage for a whole assortment of materials. IBCs and 55-gallon drums are used for liquids, semi-solids, pastes, or solids.
There are many advantages to using reusable containers. IBCs carry more material in better use of storage space due to their cubic shape. This has the further benefit of simpler shipping. They are stackable upon one another for even more efficient use of space and they integrate with other utilities to a high degree of synergy. Overall, IBCs have many qualities that increase the efficiency, timeliness, reliability, and cost-effectiveness that are necessary when running a profitable business.
What is an IBC Tote?
An IBC tote is an Intermediate Bulk Container Tote, which is just another name for an Intermediate Bulk Container (or IBC). An IBC is a large, industrial-grade container used for transporting and storing liquids, chemicals, and other materials. IBC totes are typically made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or similar materials, and they come in different sizes ranging from 275 gallons (1040 liters) to 330 gallons (1250 liters).
IBC totes have a palletized base that allows them to be easily moved by forklift or pallet jack, and they also have built-in valves and fittings for dispensing or transferring the contents. They are commonly used in a wide range of industries, including agriculture, chemical manufacturing, food and beverage production, and pharmaceuticals. IBC totes are designed to be reusable and can be cleaned and sterilized between uses, making them a more sustainable option compared to traditional single-use containers.
