      Are there any companies in Daytona Beach, Florida that recycle old well kept sports and band trophies? I have 5 large boxes that need a good home.

        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.

            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.

            Special Olympics explicitly says that they do NOT want used trophies. They give out new trophies and ribbons for their events. Thanks.

            We have an organization called "Community Living" in our town where challenged people live. They have picnics and sports events and the residents got a trophy for winning. All were from garage sales and had been tossed out. They really don't care what the trophy says or whose name is on it or what it was for. They "won."

            Also try clubs and youth groups in the area. You could offer them on Freecycle or whatever you have. When I taught, we used them in our curling bonspiel, and some places will swap out the tops, so that bowling trophys, for example, can be changed to sunflower spitting contest trophys. I have also seen them for sale at the Salvation Army or Winners, so you can give them to charities too.

            We have several trophies which were packed away in our attic. These were from our childrens' high school days in the late 70s, early 80s. They do not want them, nor do we. Is there a place in the Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania area that accepts these for recycling purposes?

            Since the plate can be removed, check out the local thrift stores.

            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?

              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

                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.

                There are many places that will reuse trophies - boys and girls clubs, perhaps Scouts & Guides, sometimes schools, charitable events, etc. If they do not use them for the sport that is depicted, most trophy sellers will swap out the top, sometimes for free (especially if you are getting engraving done there.)

                We used to recycle curling trophies at the school I taught at; we took off the name plaques, and used them that way. Many places like Goodwill or the Salvation Army thrift shops will take them as well, as they can sell them.

                I am wanting to donate tropies that my daughters have earned through 4-H and local horse shows. Is there anywhere in Canada that takes the donation of trophies? I live in Southern Alberta.

                  For a start, why don't you contact the local 4H clubs and see if they would like to reuse the trophies? Remove the name plaques, maybe keep those for a souvenir as they take up hardly any space, and the trophies are ready to be used again. With a phonecall or two, you will likely find someplace that will use them - a local school (my school used to reuse curling trophies for our bonspiels), a sports day with kids events (my mom took curling trophies, swapped out the curler for virtually no charge, and had them engraved for sunflower spitting and ballthrow competitions), maybe Special Olympics.

                  The Salvation Army will take trophies as well as Value Village, if you can't find any local club or organization that wants them. I am from Sask; I am sure it would be the same where you are.

                  Old trophies can be recycled by using the tops (the people, balls, etc) as a coat rack in a child's room by attaching the tops to a piece of wood as the hangers. The marble can be reused in the garden to separate flower beds, if you lay then on their side it gives a sawtooth effect much like bricks on their sides. Hope this gives you some ideas!
