I hate to throw this much plastic into the landfill!  What can I do with these large plastic containers?

I actually look for those kinds of large plastic containers all the time - to store materials I use like corks, electronic components and all sorts of odds and ends for crafts. When I've had a surplus, kindergarten teachers were happy to have them for storage.
Gardeners would probably like the containers for use as planters, to store compost or leftover gravel and such.
They also serve as a good base for paper mache - cut off the top and use the bottom as your base for a paper mache basket.
Use to store dry foods like beans, rice, etc.
