I was wondering what everyone does with their empty livefood tubs?
Apart from the obvious and throw them out.. I did find a company that used to buy them back for 10p each + postage but their site seem's to be down at the moment :(

Aaargh dont throw them! People are always wanting those tubs, Im certain someone will take them off your hands.
A lot of people use them for hatchling tubs and for transporting hatchling snakes and lizards.

Theyre also good for storing odd bits and bobs like stick insect eggs. Im sure other people have loooads more uses for them.

Some shops take the empty tubs back in return for 5p each off of the price of new (full) tubs. They can always come in handy for incubating eggs and stuff though 8)

I keep all mine as well and now have well over 100.Not bad for someone that only keeps 2 tarantulas but they will come in handy for the corn hatchlings this season.

I use them to pack inverts in when I sell them. I also use them as various invert housing.

I'll take some off your hands for the cost of postage if your interested, I can pay via paypal. Not really worth me paying postage unless your willing to send 20 or more :)

Pm me :)

I save all mine, probably got about 100 or so. Eventually I will use them for hatchlings and other things in the pipeline.

You could always collect them and sell them on ebay, someone will buy them. :lol:

Oh no ah well go and tell him that Matt and Ian in Abby Pets have started to do it and I am sure he will start again. No thats nasty. It was good for all the rep keepers in the area though when another rep shop opened in Rhyl lol
