    Only use plastic that is BPA/BPH free….Others ended up smelling like petroleum after short usage. Frustrating to find large, stainless steel containers for 10-20 pounds of dog food….searched Amazon, chemical companies, food prep companies…no luck!

      Hi Cheri Walmart has them by their trash cans and it will hold about 20 lbs…it’s not the large metal cans for garbage

    I bought a plastic container especially for dog food. It’s airtight sealed no dogfood keeps for about 3 months. We do buy the large bag because it’s just more cost effective. Please let me know about the plastic storage bin???

    What should I be using instead of the plastic container?? The dog food bags themselves that I get are either all plastic or plastic lined!!!

    I would like to find out the results of your survey as well as suggestions you may have.

    2 large german shepards, go thru 2 large bags every 2 weeks. Dry food is not in the plastic containers long enough to significantly absorb anything harmful.

    I read that you should not store dry dog food in plastic containers so I use a large cookie tin.
