Old Tupperware that is in poor condition can sometimes be traded in for a new replacement due to the company's lifetime warranty. It can also be recycled in many areas or used for craft projects.
Certain damages do not qualify for Tupperware's lifetime warranty, including damage from the container being dropped or chewed. Cosmetic damage, such as staining or a bad smell, is also not covered. Tupperware that is in decent condition but simply not needed anymore can be donated to thrift stores. Some people enjoy owning or collecting certain vintage styles. If the quality is too poor, it can often simply be added to city recycling bins, although people considering this should check with their local recycling center first to ensure it's acceptable.
Some parents or teachers also use them for making simple crafts. If there are no cracks or holes, they can be used for making small bits of recycled paper. Tupperware can also be reused for organizing craft rooms or small toys. Undamaged containers can store small craft supplies like glitter, and even containers with small cracks or holes can be used to store larger items like crayons or markers. For homes with only adults and older children, Tupperware can be reused for organizing home improvement supplies, such as nails or screws, or office supplies like rubber bands or paper clips.
