Huge pile of unused takeout utensils - best way to dispose?
I've de-cluttered the kitchen and notice we have accumulated a huge pile of unused takeout utensils (mainly chopsticks and plastic forks). We always tell the restaurants we don't want them, but many of them forget and give it to us anyways. Does anyone know what the best way to re-purpose them? I know I could just throw them in the trash (and will do it if that's the only option), but it seems like such a waste. I'm assuming the restaurants don't want them back due to hygiene reasons.
