If you were lucky enough to be bought a huge tub of Chupa Chups lollies, keep the tin bucket and use it as a bin. The bright colours make it a really funky, potentially retro, recycling bin for kitchen waste.

Children rarely know what a bin is for but they would be encouraged to use it for rubbish if you let them have it in their room.
I am a fan of repurposing containers and large tin buckets are perfect as waste paper bins.
Tins which are manufactured to hold edible produce would usually be made with a food-grade varnish so the tin can be reused for biscuits or sweets. However, the rubbish bin option is a good idea if you discover that you have a tin which is not airtight.
