This is pretty much what I do. If I bring something out and it isn't impressing me I'll generally leave it wherever it lands.

If I find a disc with no name or number it gets tossed in the nearest trash receptacle. If it has a name and number I call the police. I hate litterbugs.

If I find a disc with no name or number and it is not a disc that I would throw, I just take it to the next basket and leave it lay in the tray. Not littering and maybe makes it easier for the owner to find or let someone take it who will use it.

I give mine to either new players, or some that might be strapped for cash.

A few scenarios for me:
-If a disc has number, I call it and hide the disc on the course for the owner to come back for it. (trying to arrange a meet up is too much of a hassle)
-If I find an unmarked disc, I leave it sitting on that holes basket.
-Every once in awhile I will get so fed up with a disc I own or have a disc I will never throw, I will write nice note on it and leave it in a basket to be purposefully found.

I found one last week in pieces, used to be some kind of DX fairway deal, went through whatever they used to cut the grass.

Its hardly littering. The discs get gobbled up by all the people playing. Now, if I purposely tossed them into lakes THAT would be littering.

Besides, its fun to find random discs on the course. I see zero problem leaving a few out there once in a while.

No, you've decided it's trash and left it.

That's littering.

I did that once with a disc, a new Pro D Magnet that was one of the pre 2006 Stiff models. I accidentally left the disc in the basket at a tournament and a week later I told the guy who found the disc to keep it since in 2008 they only had the non stiff models being made and he used the Pro D hard and loved the disc. Bad choice of loosing the disc. That stiff Pro D Magnet was the older one I had was the 3 chain with disc going to basket stamp, not a transitional Hard Pro D Magnet one with the stamp the Magnet in Pro D have now but a bit older with the little disc flying to the basket at the bottom and was still a stiff model that was my brothers old Magnet he used for a month and is mine now. I still miss that old stiff Magnet that I got in 2007 new as the last of the old stiff Magnets at a store. The old stiff Magnet was tough selling as it was a disc that just got lost on the back of the Disc Rack, the color of red mud did not help sell the disc either. Most players that used a Magnet at the time used a soft Pro D Magnet to putt with.

My brother settled on a beat to fly straight DX Gator he still uses as his putter, has a new looking just before flight numbers DX Gator as an approach disc and a MF Champion Gator he uses as a driving putter and a Woods approach disc.

Long story short I left a disc just under a year old at Tournament because the guy running the Clash at Corn, Palace Travis Blase made the rules for Mandos so confusing you had to be a local to know what tree or bush he was talking about. I was frazzled over if we made the mando, it was never marked to which or what the mandos were thus left disc in the basket by accident for the tournament.
