In NSW they ( the Milk distributors had a round up of crates and a number of people got large fines for having them in their possession They carry a sign stating fines for unauthorized possession. Reject Shops sell a fold down model and I have seen other outlets with the same ridge milk crate designs Cheap Cheap

This is why all kayak fishing workshops should have a 4" grinder or blow torch ...... what sign???

Shopping baskets do the same thing as crates, and need similar collecting techniques as crate recoveries.

I got mine from the local servo down the road. Each time i go there i just ask if i can take a few 9 times out of 10 they say yes. TIP try and find the ones with 4 closed sides. Most have 3 sides and one side with a massive gap in it for some reason. Just ask. If you don't ask you don't get. Simple as that.

Check out grandpas garage or other old relatives. Most people from that era never wasted anything and they make great storage boxes. My old man has several in his garage and they were the heavier duty type which housed glass milk bottles. I have plenty as well and use them for a variety of things including use as a stepladder. Don,t try this at work though. The do gooder police will probably try and get you sacked lol. Gaz

Buy them it's far cheaper than the fines for tea leafing them. When the dairy companies find they are running out they start to crack down on pocession.

By the way most loading docks have CCTV for that reason

Availability shouldn't be an issue however the short answers to how much do they cost is likely to be as follows...
Legal crates = not much :grin:
Illegal crates = more than it's worth if you get caught :smart:

Good advice can be free but poor advice can cost you big time.

Happy decision making....
