Line them with a small bit of newspaper (so the holes are covered) and use them as plant starter boxes. They should last about 3 seasons, but if you don't want to bother to empty them at the end of the season, just let them sit over the winter and they will eventually rot out. You can also bury them in the ground, if you don't want to bother transplanting the plants, or if you are worried about the roots getting damaged during the moving process.

Cut the boxes into strips about 6" long and 1" wide. Use them as fire starters. You'll never need to buy fire starters again.

Sure does! It surprised me the first time I accidentally put a waxed box on a campfire. WHOOSH!

Recycling composite materials (wax and paper) is nigh on impossible - Its burn or land fill.
