How can I reuse or recycle … veg trays?
Most of the time, we buy loose veg – less packaging, get to choose exact which items we want and how many etc etc. But every now and then, usually when we go shopping last thing and there is no choice at all, we have to buy it pre-packed.
The most common offender is courgettes but I couldn’t find a picture of courgettes on a tray and we’ve got loose ones at the moment so I can’t take a picture myself. So here’s a picture of sausages on a similar tray, just imagine the sausages are courgettes. Ok.
So here we have our courgettes on trays. They’re narrow, shallow trays, either make of cushioning foam or flimsy plastic and we don’t know what to do with them. They’re not deep enough to use as kitchen top compost collection receptacles (we use mushroom boxes for this purpose when cooking or for collecting tea bags/leaves each day) but the plastic ones especially are too flimsy to be used under plant pots.
