I have spare pan lids (glass and metal) from broken pans, and lots of empty CD cases, is there anyway they can be recycled or is landfill the only option? :(

I found this which might help:
http://www.recyclethis.co.uk/20060925/h ... -cd-covers

It is a full time job working out what to do with stuff. I haven't seen this site before but it looks useful.

Best wishes, Jill

I have some old saucepan lids that I've kept. I have some serving dishes which don't have lids and the saucepan lids are perfect to pop over the dishes.

I also use the glass ones to cover tenderish plants in pots outside or as mini-propagators.
