    I've got bent, broken, squashed, dinged cansiters all over my darkroom floor. They are all wrapped up in discarded black and white backing paper. I suppose I should clean them up one day. I will recycle them when I do.
    I don't need to store pot because I smoke it all in one go

    I do the same, but most of them just go into a box because I am certain there will be a use for them some day...but the box keeps getting bigger...

    These things do multiply don't they? The uses are as many as your imagination. Paper backing gets tossed but the spools live in a box marked "spools".

    I store my fishing flies in the clear cans, the black canisters go into a box in the DR for future use when I roll film. I reroll the paper backing and use it to teach newbies how to load a 120 camera, I've even sent them out to people on accasion who request them for testing cameras.

    I never thought of that use for 35mm cans.

    I keep a couple them in the cases with my underwater cameras for batteries and all the water proof caps that I have to take on and off the cameras when I dive them.

    I keep a few on a shelf over the computer for just in case, my wife uses some to keep crafting supplies in, and I have donated some to her that she has passed to her digital crafting friends. All the rest on my 35mm cans go into the recycle bin along with the 120 spools, cardboard film boxes and the plastic boxes that slides come back in. Backing paper goes in the trash along with Polaroid tear offs.

    I really hope there is no one out there using these things to make Geocaches, the last thing the Geocaching world needs is more 35mm caches.

For non-critical work they make inexpensive and convenient pinhole cameras. They work for housing minature electronic devices.
    Thank you for that idea!

    A long time ago in a previous century all Kodachrome in Canada was sold "processing included" and came with a free envelope that could be used to mail the exposed film to the nearest Kodak processing laboratory.

    On a reasonably regular basis, someone would get the brilliant idea of putting pot into the plastic cannisters and mailing same to another address (not Kodak's) using the Kodak envelope.

    Unfortunately they didn't count on the fact that the Post Office saw such high volumes of those envelopes that they would tend to just automatically send the envelopes to the nearest Kodak lab without reading the address on the envelope.

    Kodak would open all of those cannisters in extremely subdued light (people do the stupidest things with film) so the staff in that part of the lab would discover the contents of the cannisters essentially by feel.

    In that earlier, more innocent time, some of the staff were a bit freaked out by their discoveries!

    The RCMP would be called, and in some cases the contraband would be replaced and then the package would be sent along, in the hope that someone would claim the contents, and thus incriminate themselves.

    It was a simpler time then ....

    HAHA thats a very interesting tidbit Matt!

    I reuse the canisters when I reload new cassettes. My grandparents used to load them up with quarters to buy their daily paper with.

    Thinking of winding backing paper back on to empty 120 spools and Ebay-ing the package to people who want to do homeopathic photography.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.
