Per Wayne's comment about companies who recycle buckets, this question just
came up with one of my co-workers this week. He found the following web
site. Among other material recycling resources on this site there is one
listed for "Plastic Buckets".

http://wastexchange.org/

Go to the upper right hand corner and click on "materials wanted", a
subject search window appears with an arrow. Select "plastics &
rubber". Just below that a list of items will appear. Click down and you
will find a listing for plastic buckets. When you click on that, the
details of the recycling company who wants the buckets will appear. The
name is Florida C & D Waste Recycling just in case you have problems
finding it. There is no geographical restrictions.

I hope this is helpful!
