I know that most of the plastic garbage cans are not safe.

Based on what solid information, Steve?

Am I the only one here who is shocked by such statements of untrue fact?

I have used many different kinds of plastic garbage cans, over many, many years. I have never observed a problem (other than leakage from a cheap Rubbermaid) with any of them.

All true plastics usually include some plasticizers, and they do get into the water over a *very* long period of exposure. For that reason, I may favor "food grade" tanks for long-term water storage, but am not too fanatical about it.

Of course, I have been known to take a drink from the hose, too. ;-)
