Poly-Overpack Salvage Drums

Poly-Overpack Salvage Drums

The Poly-Overpack Salvage Drum is the safe and economical solution for the transportation and temporary storage of damaged or leaking drums of hazardous materials. Rugged, 100% UV-protected polyethylene provides protection over a wide range of chemicals including solvents, acids, poisons and explosives. Perfect for emergency response, contamination site cleanup, and spill control kits. They are DOT/UN rated for transport

20 and 30-gallon Salvage Drums are versatile units that can directly contain solids and sludges with security. With a half-turnlid, these ergonomically designed units allow for easy access, unlike competing “hoop-ring designs” that need a bolt and nut. The 20-gallon unit accepts bottles, cans, and 5-gallon pails, while the 30-gallon unit can contain drums w/capacities up to 16 gallons. Units are also nestable, which allows for ease of shipment. Save on shipping cost and storage space!

The Poly-Overpack® 65 meets Group 1 packaging standards, salvage drum regulations, and is designed to overpack 30-gallon drums. This salvage drum nests for easy storage and has a lid gasket for secure containment. No wasted space! No wasted money.

When it comes to 55 gal drums the Poly-Overpack® 95 meets Group 1 packaging standards and salvage drum regulations. Unlike competing overpacks, our Poly-Overpack® 95 safely contains a wide range of hazardous materials typically stored in 55-gallon drums including: acids, corrosives and damaged parts. Closing is simple, place any long object, like a wooden 2×4”, in the handy lid slots and turn 180° to create a tight, secure and leak free container. Meets performance-oriented packaging requirements of US DOT and UN regulations.

The Poly-Overpack® 110 Salvage Drum is the only 110-gallon screw top drum on the market. Containing irregular drums is not a problem with this handy-sized overpack. This salvage drum comes with all the great performance features of the Poly-Overpack® 95 but is built taller to handle misshapen drums.


For storing transformers the Poly-Overpack® 180T is ideal. It offers a large 180-gallon capacity to handle the big jobs, while its Tight Grip feature ensures a secure seal, saving you time and money.

For another option in transporting and storing transformers, please see the following link to transformer containment bags, which are flexible containment that are DOT approved for transport.

Designed specifically for the storage of large transformers, the Poly-Overpack® 600 offers an easy, cost-effective way to keep larger quantities of hazardous fluids contained.
