Other than clog the shelves of the fridge, is there any craft or anything for those throw-away condiment portion things? What would happen if you tilled them in? Fed the hawgs? I know fish won't bite them -- If anybody needs some, i think we have enough for a nice wide belt around the earth or maybe a giant roadside skyscraper .....

Just saw a gadget for in the refrigerator door
in a catalog, where you can store those almost empty ketchup bottles upside down (so you can use the last drop). That's what I do now is try to prop them upside down in the door. Then rinse out and hopefully recycle. Some towns have an open 24 hr recycle bins, very clean indeed. Other towns have to lock theirs up at night, making it more difficult to recycle--at least get there during their "open" hours. In our area,
we can recycle #1 and #2's, but not the other numbers.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the recycling going on in Melbourne - about 10 uears ago, they'd just pile heaps of bottles out front Monday nite and the truck would pick them up in the morning. If they'd have tried that here back then, kids would have smashed them overnite. Different folks altogether and my hat's off to them ......

I don't know about ketchup being a vegetable, but I've heard of it being the result of pickling. Ketchup is prepared with vinegar and sugar or is pickled tomatoes. Dont need refrigeration.
