So I've been doing street marketing (ie. putting up posters in the streets) and I use up a lot of sticky tape. As such, I've been trying to come up with uses for all the plastic sticky tape reels I end up with (maybe 6 in a day about once a week). They're just white plastic, about 3.5cm in diameter. Has anyone got any suggestions for things I can do with them instead of throwing them out?

If you know any Cub Scouts, they can be decorated to make neckerchief slides.  A lot of Scout leaders are looking for donations of things to make neckerchief slides out of.  Some packs trade small gifts with outher dens or packs at jamborees & campouts.  Our den & pack made slides out of the tape rolls, out of plastic beads & plastic lacing, out of walnut shells, out of suede lacing, etc.

They can be decorated to make napkin rings.

Also, they can be decorated to make Christmas ornaments - small wreaths - by glueing beads and small found objects to them.

You can use them to organize scarves in a drawer.

You can glue several together horizontally and vertically (at least 4 high) to make a pencil organizer for your desk.  You need to stagger them in a V or W shape - not in a straight line - to make the holder more stable.

Hope some of these struck a note!

If you're determined to save a bunch of them and they are stack-able then maybe you can superglue them together and make them into legs for a table. You could also try to make them into handles for storage bags. Maybe you can even slide the reels around cords (i.e. phone charger cord, lamp cord) and use them to label the cords.
