Question Discarding broken discs?

Found a broken KC Pro Gazelle on the course today. I didn't want to leave it there and I don't to throw it away either. Can they be tossed into the plastic recyclables?

I'm fairly certain that the appropriate place for an old broken frisbee is up on a roof somewhere.

My roof is round.

A neighbor's roof would also be acceptable.

Larry Labond uses them for trophies in his "Cracked Plastic Classic" winter tournament...

Broken discs should be disposed of in the following manner:

Build a fire. The fire should be fairly large and of sufficient intensity to ensure complete burning of the disc.

Place the disc on the fire.

Individual(s) come to attention, salute the disc and have a brief period of silent reflection.

After the disc is completely consumed, the fire should then be safely extinguished and the ashes buried.

This was the intent of the founding fathers

There's a shrine to a former disc golfer who passed away where people place broken discs at a local course, don't remember which one though.

Well since we are all forced to buy mercury laden light bulbs, throwing out, or burning a plastic disc shouldn't really matter. We'll all die of cancer, mercury poisoning, heart disease, or kidney failure way before we do any harm with plastics in landfills. I'd agree with the burning plan, along with some beer or shine.

I'm just heartbroken that the world is one Gazelle lighter. Especially a KC Pro. I'll have to go throw a few tomorrow morning at sunrise in its memory.
