I'm not sure if this is the right board but couldn't see where it would fit best. I have the plastic insert from a 1000 litre IBC. It was one that leaked so I have used the metal cage part to feedhay to the sheep and goats. I am wondering if anyone has any good ideas for how I can utilise the plastic part.
Cut a door in the side and they make great goat shelters or dog houses. Drill some drain holes in the bottom so it doesn't hold water at all.
If you cut them in half, you can have two cold frames.
They can be used to haul light fluffy stuff (sawdust, straw, compost, leaves, clippings, etc) in a wagon or truck, more than you normally can hold.
The sides can be cut to make windows for sheds.
There are tons of things they can be used for, it is just what do you actually need that they would be best for.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Unfortunately a wicking bed would just drown everything round here as it is so wet Oh to have some sunshine.
The other problem that we have is it is very windy here and the insert has already travelled around the place unaided a few times so any use will have to involve weighting it or fixing it down somehow.
If anyone has any other ideas I'd be very grateful. I know I'm getting a bit desperate I just hate to send it to the dump.
