Domino Joiner tenon containers
« on: January 08, 2019, 04:03 PM »
I have half a dozen plastic containers that came with the domino tenons and they are the right size for various shop uses. I use one of them to keep my safety glasses, ear plugs and mask, which I put on before stepping into the shop. Another is used for keeping the camera accessories like the dust blower, backup battery,  battery charger, etc.

What do you use your empty containers for? They're too good for the recycle bin.

What plastic containers?
Dominos here come in cardboard boxes - only the assortments come in Systainers, which may be a kind of plastic container, but...

In the US the "bulk" come in a systainer sized cardboard box for ~100USD (like the pack of 780 8mmx40mm) with 6 plastic bags inside.  The smaller packs for ~25USD have a small plastic "clamshell" like container (like the 130 8mmx40mm) with a single plastic bag inside.

I did not realize there is different packaging for the same product. I keep extra dominoes in addition to those stored in the systainer. The durable plastic containers are about 7cm x 20 cm x 25 cm external (see image).

Ah, you ment the blister packs. I drop them in the recycling bin (for them to get burned thermally recycled) instantly.
IMHO that stuff should be made illegal as it's a waste of resources.

what resource should be used instead?  Plastics are recyclable and do not require of destroying productive land for disposable products. That is like burning your food. Though I guess some people think this a good idea. Maybe they should require you bring your own reusable bag? :)

Those containers are unnecessary as the plastic bags the dominoes are packaged in are strong enough by themselves. These days, my household generates about 75% of recyclable waste, 15% compostable, and 10% garbage which would head to the landfill. Before we had any R & C programs (about 3 or 4 years ago), 100% went to the landfill.

Wood scraps and saw dust are compostable waste.
