BASCO’s RightPail: What Makes These the Best Plastic Buckets?

The RightPail for Almost Any Application

When you’re shopping for 5 gallon buckets and pails, you have a lot of options to choose from. So, why should BASCO’s RightPail be the bucket that you choose? You may think that every plastic bucket is the same, but that’s not the case. At BASCO, we know a thing or two about containers, especially buckets and pails, and we’ve curated our selection of 5 gallon pails to be both comprehensive and accommodating. Let’s break down the reasons that these are the right pails for you.

  • FDA Compliance – RightPails are made of food grade materials, making them excellent for storing your edible products and beverages.
  • UN Ratings – For when you need that extra layer of safety, our RightPails are certified to handle certain hazardous chemicals and materials.
  • Tamper Evidence – By utilizing RightPails with their proper lid, you’ll be able to quickly and easily identify if your buckets have been opened and their contents tampered with.
  • Durable Materials – Built to last and designed to take a beating, the HDPE material is both dent and scratch resistant.

FDA Compliant, Food Grade Plastic Buckets. The RightPail for Food.

When you’re storing and handling food products, you need the extra reassurance that your space is clean, your hands are washed, and your containers are food grade. While the clean space and washed hands are up to you, BASCO can handle the food grade containers. RightPails provide you with containers that won’t contaminate, allowing you to always end up with a delicious product that won’t be full of resins or other unwanted substances that may rub off of other containers. Ease your mind from a bit of worry, and rest assured that your food is safe to eat, as long as it was stored in a RightPail.

We have plenty of customers who work with foods, be they restaurants, manufacturers, or even just homemakers with lots of mouths to feed. We like to get to know our customers, so we spoke with a few of them to see how they use RightPails in their day-to-day operation, here’s what one of them had to say:

“At our Italian restaurant, we serve upwards of 300 people per day between dine-in, pick-up, and delivery. Most people are ordering pizza, but our sandwiches and soups are super popular, too. We use our buckets for at least one step in each recipe that we have. Our pizza sauce gets mixed and stored in buckets, our soups are stored in buckets, and the au jus for our Italian beef sandwiches is mixed and stored in buckets. Honestly, they’re kinda a life saver. It’s super convenient to have these big containers with handles on them, they’re really easy to carry around in the crowded kitchen. We even use the smaller ones, like the one gallon buckets, just because it’s a little more convenient sometimes. One time I caught our busboy drinking the minestrone straight from the one gallon bucket. It’s funny, my favorite part of the day is always when I get to attach a mixer to a drill and mix the pizza sauce right in the bucket.”

- Matt K., sous chef at one of our favorite Chicago pizza spots.

UN Rated Plastic Buckets. The RightPail for Hazardous Materials.

When it comes to less-edible products, like hazardous chemicals and waste, the RightPail can still stand up to the task. The United Nations has made a system to classify which kinds of packaging are appropriate for shipping and storing certain types of hazardous materials. Through rigorous testing, a container can be certified and assigned a UN rating, allowing you to safely utilize these containers for the hazardous materials for which they are approved. We want our RightPail to be ready for any use case, so we made sure that they’re equipped with versatile UN ratings, so you can rest assured that they’re safe for your chemicals.

When transporting hazardous materials, you can be subjected to hefty fines and penalties if you aren’t complying with the Department of Transportation’s Code of Regulations. Read up on the code, make sure you’re getting the right packaging, and double check your UN ratings so you can do everything by the book. If it all seems a little too complicated, feel free to call us up! At BASCO, we’ve been dealing with hazardous materials for decades, and our customer service team can help you find the perfect packaging for your chemicals. Don’t be surprised if we recommend RightPails, because they work for tons of different circumstances!

Tamper Evident and Durable Plastic Pails. The RightPail for Sensitive Materials.

If you’re working with sensitive products, and you’re worried about security, then the RightPail might just be the perfect container for your operation. When equipped with their tear-tab lids, you can always tell when a RightPail has been opened, because the tab will be torn. This allows you to easily, at a glance, tell if your product has been compromised. Not only will the tear-tab help to protect your products, but the durable HDPE material will work wonders to prevent damage. Being that it is both dent and scratch resistant, HDPE is one of the strongest plastics available, and if a stronger one becomes available, you can rest assured that BASCO will be making a RightPail out of it. HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene, a plastic composite that is thick and strong enough to resist damage from being dropped, scuffed, banged up, and jostled in shipping. These advantages provide you with peace of mind and security, ensuring that your product is treated with the respect that it deserves.
