Hi Barbara,

We buy special funnels (Part #8227) for our containers from a company called Safety First ( ). This funnel might be too big for a 5 gallon can, we use 30 gallon containers, but call the company and they can help you get what you need. Ours are vented and include a flame arrestor in it.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] 5-gallon waste container with vented lid

Does anyone currently use 5-gallon waste containers with vented lids (not a side vent, but a vent in the main lid)?
If so, could you please forward the vendor information to me?
I currently have vented lids for the 4-L bottles, but some of my researchers need larger containers.
(Eco funnels are not permitted at my institution.) Thanks very much!
