How to repurpose Empty orange medication bottles?

Does anyone have something clever to do with empty orange medication bottles? It seems such a shame to put them in recycling if there is some way to repurpose them.

    Use for small nails, sewing pins. If you have an RV it is a way to keep a small supply handy.

    I use the pill bottles to store seeds. Write what kind of seeds on side and place in freezer to winter over.

    There are companies that collect them for sending to 3rd world countries. You will have to troll Google to get a couple names. I also bup small quantities of obscure spices at Whole Foods and store the unused amount in med bottles. They are dark and prevent light deterioration of the spice.
