State and federal agencies encourage the re-use and recycling of large and sturdy 55-gallon drums to conserve natural resources. If the drum is not able to be re-used, it can be recycled as scrap metal. Because these drums might have contained dangerous materials at one time, though, special care must be taken to ensure they are disposed of properly without damage to the environment or to public health.
