|Examine|| It's an empty bucket.
Players may purchase a bucket from most general stores and farming shops for 2 coins. An unlimited number can be obtained from a tool store 2 in the workshop of a player-owned house. You can also find one in the basement of Lumbridge Castle's kitchen. It will be located on a table. It also can be won on Squeal of Fortune.
Buckets can contain any of the following items:
- Apple mush
- Chocolatey milk (milk + chocolate dust)
- Coal (only during the 2008 Easter event)
- Hangover cure
- Ugthanki dung
- Weird gloop

One of the fastest ways to obtain buckets is to have a player-owned house that has a larder. You can get a bucket of milk in just two clicks, then use the milk to empty the bucket. This is also one of the fastest ways to get milk. A player can also use the Tool Store 2 in their player-owned house to obtain empty buckets. This is actually more convenient, because the player doesn't have to empty the bucket after it's in their inventory. Buckets can be obtained quickly by mousing over the tool store, and rapidly clicking and pressing 1.
Players can buy buckets from Grand Exchange but there is a limit which allows a player to buy 100 buckets in every 4 hours (600 per day). The same thing is with pots. This can be problematic for players who need 1000+ buckets or pots for collecting ectoplasm and bonemeal.
Arhein in Catherby sells 30 buckets and a bank is just across the street. (Arhein is often used by players making Supercompost, as he also sells 40 Pineapples per day and is close to the Catherby compost bin).
Most, if not all, farm supply shops stock 100 buckets at 2 coins each.
Players can also find them for free in many locations throughout the game, including:
- Next to the bank in Zanaris
- Outside the farming shop north of Port Sarim
- A bucket full of water respawns in Catherby
- Beehives by Camelot
- South of Ardougne Zoo next to a well
- Al Kharid - tent south-west of cactus patch located north-eastern part of city
- In the cellar under the kitchen in Lumbridge Castle
- On Gillie Groats's farm next to the prized dairy cow
- In the room furthest south east in Draynor Manor
- West of the well in Burgh de Rott
- In Edmond's garden
- Inside the Goblin Village by General Bentnose.
- The farming shop near the Catherby patches
Players who try to take the bucket from the respawn in Meiyerditch will receive the message: "I really do not want to go anywhere near that! It stinks!" Attempting to use Telekinetic Grab to take it will yield the message: "I really don't want to waste runes on grabbing this item."
