Um... stealing them? Duh.

In Maine it's a hefty fine and 30 days in lockup if you are found guilty.

I'l probably looking at $9K in fines and three years alone.

I haven't seen a feral milk crate in years. You can buy them at Home Depot for like $5, though. That way you don't attract the dreaded Milk crate/Mattress tag police (they combined forces in 1986).

The estate sales from the people who fell off of them?

Restaurants usually have stacks of them in the back, in our case it's because the delivery drivers refuse to take them back. They're supposed to return them to the dairy but you usually have to call your sales rep to get them to pick them up, then the drivers usually hold a grudge and deliver late.

Also, the crates they sell at home depot are far to flimsy to stand on, milk crates have much thicker plastic.

I can't imagine home Depot selling something flimsy and substandard

I wonder if there's a person on earth who is taking part in all of these stupid" challenges"? I bet that would be one dull human.

Change it to a milk carton challenge.

I would find them just lying around in the alleys in Boston.  I snagged one or two because I needed something to sit on on my "balcony" (it was a metal grate so regular furniture with legs were out), but they were literally littering the streets.

Probably stealing them from Waffle House. The one I managed had around 50 crates stacked inside the dumpster enclosure, and another 50 or so stacked outside the back door.

Milk crates went away when the record player was replaced by the CD player.

In Kentucky, it's illegal to possess a milk crate from a dairy.

It has been so long since I saw one, and I am so old, that when I heard "milk crate" I was thinking of the ones made from welded steel wire that you could almost use to put your car up on blocks.

It is possible to buy sturdy versions that are comparable to the "real thing"

16 Quart Black Milk Storage Crate Model Number: BBCRATE16-1061K Menards ® SKU: 2140170

I have a couple of these myself and they are not the back-to-school EZ-Break type.

Yeah, you're better off getting things from Harbor Freight to avoid flimsy and substandard.

I guess I don't hang around alleys much anymore.

I have never stolen a milk crate, but somehow have managed to wind up with about half a dozen, all stamped with the names of various dairies from various parts of the country, with warnings about fines for possessing them.

They're damn handy, though.

I imagine supermarkets and cafeterias probably have a bunch lying around too.
