I offer a hybrid of various suggestions.

Step one is to quickly build a crate with a wide skid bottom that will only just fit the acid container. (So it won’t tip over and you can lift it with a forklift).

Then you would source enough sealable high density polyethylene containers to accomodate the entire batch, diluted. Dilution level should be extreme so you can dispose of it gradually by some means such as dumping it in your driveway.

Then sell your house.

I think that OP is stuck with it unless he wants to spend a bunch of money chasing the chain of custody of a barrel of acid.

Gonna have to get creative.

I would be sure that my company name, what we specialize in, and a direct quote made it into the promo piece.

Talked to friend today, call Clean Harbors, they are one of the largest industrial chemical waste removers in the country. They can help. Not free though. Enviromental Waste removal.

The drum gets lifted and put in another container on a pallet and taken away

If you’d like to report a spill, please hang up and try again.

If you need help, hang up, and then dial your operator.

Ask your insurance agent to add to your policy whichever hazardous waste coverage has the lowest minimum earned premium. You won’t need the coverage for long.

Then dump it all over your kitchen cabinets and vehicles. Lemonade.

A super villain origin story plot device like a barrel of acid is hard to come by. Maybe hang onto it, you might want to use it later.

Can you give them a formal public review or anything? If so you could get this to get legs. These assholes make rules and then have no plan for anyone to adhere to them, the public should see that.

Some formal review should get eyes on it.
It’s time someone stood up for the acid barrel owners! Be the chemical change you want to see!
