Tote bin lids reuse ideas needed

I have about 25 tote bin lids that are headed to the landfill. Has anyone heard of any way to reuse or recycle these lids? I've been trying to think of possible uses in the garden to keep the weeds down.

Sure try it on paths as long as they don't pose a trip hazard.

Other ideas:

trays for potted plants

serving tray for backyard BBQ/picni

drip guard for under car in garage

base for anything that you need to catch drips

depending on size of them -- could you drill holes & zip tie corners together to make a compost bin or raised garden bed frame for deeply rooted plants. Use container soil for a container garden that doesn't need as much watering because it touches the earth

as lid on compost tea buckets to keep flies out or worm bin lid

muddy boot tray

pet foot tray

Ahhh Corrine1 I was gonna say boot tray lol! But the zip tie idea made me think that it could be a compost bin if you turn them on end for height.
