    repurposedINBOX"I have some trade show shipping cases that we no longer need at our pharmaceutical company.  They are in very good condition except that we don’t have the combinations to the locks. However, that is not needed to use or open them.  Though they are 'recyclable' plastic, it is better to reuse them in some way." - Sue

    BEFORE:  We took in this bundle of faded PVC pipe from a pipe distributor.  Because of the fading, they couldn't sell this to their customer base anymore.  But, they thought it had higher and better use than simply sending it to a plastics recycler to be ground up.  

    Dog No 1...AFTER: "If you still have the bundle of PVC pipe available I will buy it.  We will use it at dog agility shows for obstacles." - Robinette

    Q: Like with this faded PVC pipe, do you have product or inventory that you can't sell anymore as first quality?  If "yes", maybe it can be "repurposed".

    BEFORE:  These are two big tanks from a carbonation system at a beverage manufacturer.  "As far as the process, they were product tanks and mixing tank for the filler room.  They held premixed soft drinks and were sanitized per our standard as needed.  If it wasn’t finished product, it was rinsed with water, and then sanitized with a sodium hydroxide solution(dilute bleach).  The tanks were replaced as part of an updated process that improved the functions of the HMI to perform rinsing, filling, end of line cutoffs, etc.," Sean
