    Default Do we recycling broken racquets???

    Does anyone know how to recycle broken graphite or alloy racquets in Australia??? Do we just dump them in the standard household recycling bins or is there a specific procedure for recycling badminton racquets?

    I remember my friend broke his racquet and then got drunk afterwards and totally destroyed the racquet on the wall of a big mall. It is was soooo jokes, I would never do that though.

    Burnt one of my racket in the name of science. Othewise they sit in the cupboard for dust collection while I recycle the grommets for other rackets that are still alive.

    here is one idea. find a racket cover, or glue a cardboard or whatever on the racket head, and use it for swing practice...
