    I'm sure we all have them, they come with every media we get, the END CAPS. Heavy duty plastic holders that hold the media away from the surface. Other than using them as a organization tool for media, has anyone found any other "good"use for them? I have so many, and I hate to keep throwing them out, but its getting out of control.

    They should have a recycle symbol on them. We have contacted our city and I put in our blue bin

    I would recycle if I was paid to do it, but I just throw everything in one dumpster.

    I'm going to attempt to build a plane from them and market it to third world countries.

    I recycle to preserve natural resources and energy, or to prevent pollution, not because I’m paid for. Here in Switzerland, nobody is paid for recycling, except if you have industrial quantities of valuable products. For me, recycling is a habit since I was a child (then only aluminium, metal, paper/carton and glass could be recycled) and no, I’m neither a recycle extremist nor “green”...

    Some end caps are made of PET, those can be recycled with the other PET.

    I give the small black ones to the kids, they use them as hockey pucks.

    You can tote them off to some recycling facility and feel all warm and fuzzy or you can toss them in the trash and not feel anything.

    Either way will have exactly the same effect on the environment as well as the course of history. None whatsoever.
