Speaking of that, just broke a 1990 San Marino Roc. I got used, looks like it was used it's whole life. Had a good run as my scramble disc. So yea, use them till they break.

I cycle my discs some, but I have one BT Harp that's been in the bag since they first came out and it hardly flies any differently despite looking like it's been run over by many trucks. I guess "Legends don't die kid".

Any disc that I don't throw anymore I try to sell, but those that I can't sell because they're to beat or just not interesting to anyone I bring to work. I'm a P.E. teacher so I have a couple of lessons every year when I let my pupils try them out.

I hope so because I've put a few in the recycle bin. My personal discs always end up lost after they are beat to perfection. I've had a few break or somehow ended up with someone else's trash discs and I have always recycled them.

My dog gets all my used discs unless they have sentimental value.

I trade mine in at an out of town PAS I know of that gives $2 in trade on anything as long as it isn't broken or cracked. Doesn't matter if it's a 10yr old beat to death Valkyrie, or a brand new star Destroyer, it's $2 bucks in trade!

Use them as a 'water disc' . so on sketchy holes I will use a disc I don't worry about so I can throw with confidence. Or I try to sell it. If its not a good disc i'll give away

Star/ESP type plastic is mainly polyethylene I think, and most curbside pickups take #2 HDPE/#4 LDPE.

Baselines, maybe polypropylene? So #5 PP.

Champ/Z are polyurethane...you could put it in the bin and the sorter has the ability to separate it out, but from there I bet it just ends up in a landfill. All speculation though...you'd have to call your local recycling center.
