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

Why not take them to a local charity shop?

kilos or tons?

i suspects tons might be easier to find an outlet for


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.

My guess is that Cathryn is talking about stuff donated to her charity shop that's too knackered/terrible to sell on.

That's what the charity shop down the road from yours is for.

This. We have a year's backlog that no-one wants.

I've warned all the charities in a 20 mile radius of Hereford that someone will be wanting to offload quantities of questionable vinyl in the not too distant future.

Is there a music themed/hipstery pub nearby? They could use the vinyl as "wallpaper". It's a thing they seem to do.
