broken boat recycling?

I've got a couple hulls that are beyond repair, even for class II teaching stuff. Anybody know anyone that'll recycle them or put them to some use and not into a landfill?

Or, anyone need a couple hulls to use for plastic to fix their more salvageable boats?

Check with a local nonprofit

You might want to check with a local camp in your area. My wife runs a camp for kids down in deckers. We take busted up canoes and kayaks and turn them into planters or let the kids turn them into art. It's more fun than just chucking them.

Boulder Ecocycle has a Hard-To-Recycle center: Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM)

They take just about anything.

CW safety instructors used to want junk boats to practice pinned boat extractions with their safety classes. I don't know what their current policies are, but you may be able to get a little bit of tax write-off as a donation if you give the boats to CW. Website link: Safety
