Uses for Small Styrofoam Ice Chests

How can I recycle small Styrofoam ice chests? Medication is delivered in these ice chests once a month and they are really piling up. Inside the ice chests are ice packets that I can't find another use for. Any advise on how to recycle the Styrofoam? Thanks for helping.

I also use three in my car to carry groceries home from the store...either frozen or not as it helps keep the items from rolling around the back of my SUV. My husband uses them in his trunk to transport propane tanks when he gets them filled. No tipping over!

There are lots of uses for your containers. I have an idea for the ice packs you said came with them. Slip them into hand sewn bags. Keep them in the freezer for ouch bags. Your grandkids or neighbourhood kids would probably enjoy them. Or sell at your next church bazaar. I keep a couple in my freezer for such emergencies. Adults enjoy them too.

Could a nursing home, women's shelter or homeless shelter have a use for them? Or maybe something like Meals on Wheels?
