depends i spose, if the lids are recyclable too.
best way is to re-use... which is why i wanted to buy the refill
but i do use them to store coffee beans:
I remember when shops had big jars of coffee and they weighed it out for you into brown paper bags. The bags then could be reused or composted. Local health food shops sometimes employ the same principle so you could always buy your coffee from these.
I buy the whole roasted coffee beans loose, by weight, and they put it in a paper bag for me, so - sort of full circle I guess. maybe it is out *duty* to drink more posh coffee. oh dear! but then back to economics and tight budgets...
