Is there anywhere? I have to throw away a great deal. You feel it's the kind of thing that could be melted down and reused for something but I haven't found anyone yet who does this. Anyone come across anything?

This is not just one or two that can be made into bowls or bookends but many bin bags full.







(I know I've asked this before but still worth asking again just in case.)

I take it they are no use as records. Some people still rate it as best.

Rig up some sort of launcher and use them for shotgun practice.

Why not take them to a local charity shop?

We could do tons except transport costs would cancel out any benefit I suspect. I must get around to discussing this with some of the recycling companies.

Vinyl is back in fashion with the young and some of it fetches reasonable money these days.
