    What do you do with all your old film canisters? etc?

    135 film cans
    125 backing paper? reels?
    etc?

    Has anyone found any special use for them?

    I save them for reloading or recycle them as I have too many already.

    I use the re-loadable ones. When the felt comes off I toss them in the trash.

    My kids use the 35mm ones to play with. They use them as "garbage cans" in their Lego villages. Every roll of film that gets opened is greeted with cheers by them...he...he...I love this age!

    When they eventually become tired of all the 'garbage cans' I plan to recycled them.

    The black 135 cans are used for bulk-loading. The clear ones I use nuts, washers and other small things in my tool boxes and bags.
