Any ideas? These are 3’x3’ by about 3 inches. They are packing for AC units.

plastic? any recycle number on it anywhere? if your recycle system will take it i'd send it back to be reused there. my experience with putting plastic anyplace around here is that eventually it becomes a mess i'll have to clean up again later.

i was glad to find out today that our new agreement for the township means we can go back to including other plastics and glass back in the bins.

That looks like the floor to a silkie coop to me.

Mom would probably use it to keep her winter stored potatoes off the shed floor.

those aren't packing, that's the pad the outside unit sits on. they cost around $30 each at the supply house. they look brand new. I would list them on market place.....if your installer doesn't want to use them

There you go! I had no idea what they were, just figured they were packing for the AC units. Our neighbor has a HVAC business. They were out of town, I was feeding their dogs and saw these. I thought they would get thrown away and wanted ideas as to what could be done with them. I was going to ask for them, but you have wisely pointed out that they are not trash, but a part of the units themselves. OK, scratch that idea! LOL LOL

thin cement slabs crack so easy if the bed they're put on isn't really compacted right. are they reinforced at all?

we made some decorative edges of slabs 30 inches by 16 or 18 inches, didn't put any rebar in them, they snap very easily. :( i've broken two of them already this year and i was being careful.
