That's a good idea. But is there a problem cleaning asbestos off of the brake drums? Do you just hose them off or ...?

Sorry l'm late on this post. But when my city converted to trash cans on wheels l used my old trash cans for planting. I cut them in half or bigger if you want and drilled holes, added soil and presto-large pots. They still sell them in stores.

Walmart sells a nice plastic bucket for $6.00. This Psiang Awak (Namva or Namwah) likes it.
