I would agree that the big steel containers aren't water-tight or water-proof and should fairly quickly fill with water and sink. Maybe someday future archeologists will find them and draw conclusions about our society? Unfortunately, I'm guessing most of the containers are packed full of boxes of cheap giveaways and other plastic junk from China that we really don't need but can't seem to resist buying at Walmart or the local 99 cents store. The kind of stuff that never decomposes and will be around forever.
