Using the
Capacity and volume conversion page we can find that 275 gallons are equal to 36.76 cubic feet.
If we are talking about cubic container, by taking the cubic root of 36.75 we get approximately 3.33 feet. That means the container of 3.33x3.33x3.33 feet would be enough.
If your container does not necessarily have to be cubic, you can use almost any dimentions for the "base" and calculate the third dimention. For example you can make the base 5x5 feet, in this case the height of the container would be 36.75/(5*5) = 1.47 feet.
