WikiProject Containers

Welcome to WikiProject Containers. Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of containers, packaging, and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.


The goal of this project is to ensure that all common containers and packages are included in Wikipedia and that coverage accurately reflects the subject with comprehensive, up-to-date information. All articles about containers should be illustrated with high quality images.

Searchtool.svg ScopeEdit

This Wikiproject covers all common forms of containers, with an emphasis on those which are used commercially. That would include intermodal containers, packaging, bags of all kinds, boxes, buckets and pails, barrels and drums, tanks and vats, bottles, cans, etc.
