What to do with an old lid?

Wanted to know how I can recycle an old lid, visited a recycling yard near me but will not accept it (too many components and not worth the effort). Does anyone have ideas what I can do with it?
Thank you :)

Old Helmet

I think you will find that a lot of fire and ambulance services are grateful for old helmets.  They use them for training.

Drill holes in the top. Use it as a biker themed hanging basket. :biggrin::biggrin:
