ANSWER: We do not have a product that would provide the solution for you; however, you might request the company that is sending you the material in these drums to consider using All-Fiber drums.

Explain that you are required to dismantle the drum in order to dispose of them properly. It may or may not be possible for them to pack in an all-fiber drum depending on the material being packed.

You might also consider trying to find a "drum reconditioner" in your area that would be willing to pick the drums up and resell them. This would likely be the best scenerio for you as you would not need to dispose of the drums and would infact be allowing the drums to be REUSED. Reduce, Recycle, Reuse :)
