OK, so in addition to recycling, what other use can this empty potato chips canister have? If you have read my Homespun Hannah's Blog, then you may have an idea that it can be used in crafting. To see my "discovery", follow the link below my signature.
For a while, I tried ways to prime and paint metal cans without also painting my hands. Paper towels stuck to the cans, plastic gloves stuck to the cans and left chunks behind. One day I thought: hey, this potato chips canister lid is almost the same size as the cans' top. 'Perfect to grab the cans with and turn them around while priming and painting them. Guess what- it actually works great! This "discovery" is actually re-purposing. When the lid is too old to use, it will be recycled. Isn't that just the best of both worlds? You can see some of my finished metal cans at this post on my Homespun Hannah's Blog: ~Metal cans: what fun!~
