Good day all,

My dad was given a bunch of 250 Gallon totes that stored http://lubricants.petro-canada.ca/en/products/313.aspx in them and I am wondering if there is any possible way to do bioremediation on these enough that they would serve a purpose for something positive. Now no I would never put drinking water in them and no I am not too cheap to buy food grade ones, I simply hate to see them go to waste and in the very least would use the cage structure in for something. So I am wondering if anyone on here knows of an earth friendly way to work with them. I have heard some talk of mushrooms working with petroleum for clean up or would bio fuel work for storing in them. They are your basic plastic 4' by 4' by 4'. Any thoughts of a purpose they could hold?
