Thirty gallon plastic drums are both chemical and dent resistant, and, depending on the make, can meet stringent standards for chemical compatibility with hazardous and non-hazardous materials. The strength and rigidity of these drums allow for easy handling and low shipping costs. They also save warehouse space because they are stackable and can be stored outside without fear of rusting or deterioration. What's more, the use of 30 gallon plastic drums decreases a company's overall packaging costs because the drums are reusable.

Plastic drums can be open top or closed top, with open tops having the option of a quick lock lid. Polyethylene can be dyed different colors, so, in that area, manufacturers have a few options as well. Most commonly, 30 gallon plastic drums are blue, though they can also be manufactured naturally. Natural drums are clear, which allows for easy viewing of the drum's contents.

Pigmentation may be employed to differentiate between drum contents. For example, a drum can be red, to indicate that its contents are distinct from the others. The recommended liner for 30 gallon plastic drums is the round bottom liner. Round bottom liners, which meet FDA and USDA standards, are made from clear, low-density polyethylene plastic and shape themselves to the drum, which creates a seal without forming gathers in the creases.

These drums are useful for a wide range of applications, including food and storage, along with the storage and transportation of various agricultural and industrial chemicals, foods, cleaning compounds, greases, lubricants, lubricant oils, hazardous wastes, powdered and granular materials, USDA and FDA regulated products.

Additionally, 30 gallon plastic drums may be used at parks or in public spaces for garbage disposal or recycling. A customer may even order plastic recycling lids to convert his or her drum into a receptacle appropriate for festivals, carnivals and other crowded outdoor events. These may also be used by survivalists to store materials or collect rain.
