Is this micro or not?

I would probably list it as “traditional“ and the size as “other”. I would also describe the container and post the photo (description is for the benefit of those who download info to PDAs but don't include photos).

According to the website a micro is a film cannister sized object. I agree that there should be a mini size for stuff like this and sandwich- sized Rubbbermaid containers, but until there is, this should be called traditional. I've used these myself for caches and that's what I did. But I did

make sure to describe the size on the cache page. I also added a little note to disregard the warning on the lid and wrote the words "no hazard" across the warning in black marker.

I agree with the earlier poster that anything smaller than a sandwich box should not be considered a standard-size box. It is better to err on the small side. That way anyone looking to trade an item (or drop off a travel bug) which is too big will know not to bring it to your cache.

I classify them as normal but list their size in the description.
