Thank you for your comment. These are trophies from 30 years of competing with my horse in parades all over California. I don't think youth groups would want them. I need a place that would love to use the parts to make their own trophies.

Call your local kids youth sports programs and see if they want them. In my area I have seen coaches ask for them as they spruce them up, get new name plates on them and reuse them.

If I were you, I would put an ad on craigslist.org or a local facebook group. If anyone is looking for these sorts of things, they will answer your ad. There's also freecycle.

This Minnesotta company refurbishes and recycles trophies: http://www.tcre  et/contact.shtml

"If you have more than 50 trophies, we will make a $100.00 (typically) dontation to your school or organization

Donate your old trophies and plaques

If you wish to donate your trophies to a good cause, we will come to your organization or pay for shipping of your trophies to us and make a donation to your organization."

Here's one in Wisconsin http://www.awardsmall.com/

Alternatively you could contact a local company that makes trophies in your area and ask them if they have some recycling program.

We received this advisory from a reader:

"Mostly an FYI, not a question I contacted Special Olympics, as suggested in your blog. I was told that they only use ribbons. Just thought I'd spare people the inquiry.

I am affiliated with a swim team and I have tons of trophies we do not want to throw away. Can you advise? Special Olympics does not want them. I live in Houston, Texas.

If you can't find a group that wants them, you can donate them to thrift shops. Shops in my area seem to be able to sell them. It is possible to switch out the tops (a swimmer for a golfer, for example). My mother used to have that done with donated trophies.

Where in the central New Jersey area can I donate about 60 trophies that my 3 sons have received over the past 10 years or so? The majority have a baseball, basketball, or soccer figure on top.

Answer Was this helpful? Yes

Boys and girls clubs, schools maybe. The Salvation Army will take them, and resell them. Other thrift stores may take them. Perhaps the clubs that gave them to your sons may take them back to reuse after you remove the name plates.

Hi and thanks for the information as I have difficulty finding anyone to take trophies. Of course it could be the area but I work part time for a major charity and we have been unable to sell them (at any price).

I will look for some of the places you mentioned and maybe have better luck.

Check with your local child care centers or public school. They could give them away without your name on them to a child who is earning rewards for behavior.

My belated husband was an avid pool player and I have an abundance of trophies stored away. I am looking to donate them to a charity or a pool league that might be needing trophies in order to pay out more to the players. Any suggestions?

Answer Was this helpful? Yes

Advertise on Craigslist. Do it in the "free" section and again in sports. Also, would your local pool parlor be interested? Lastly, you can ask the local sports shops what they might think. I hope that helps. PBP

Look for a place where challenged people live. We have one and they use them for prizes when they win. It doesn't matter whose name is on it or what it is for. They just know the won a prize or a trophy.

Why not put them free on craigs list? May have a needy organization who might want them.

OR contact whatever sport club they are from your local organizations. It could save them money from having to buy trophies...which are so costly. They would only need to change the plaque on them.
