Hi,

I have some old busted up blades that I would like to get rid of. A few are just wood, but some have carbon fibre shafts.

Does anyone have advice on appropriate disposal methods for these things? I mean, they're many feet long. Can I just put them in a skip? Do they need to be recycled? What about the carbon fibre? Do I burn them!?!



Any advice would be appreciated.

Someone might want the wooden ones for blades! Ask your boatman (or any boatman who is around); they should know someone who might want either.

I should elaborate - in their current state all of these blades are unusably broken. Whilst I am going to investigate the cost of repair, it probably isn't worth it for us, and I can't believe anyone needs two crappy old blades without handles.

Depending on how ''busted up'' they are, the boatmen might be interested in the wooden ones as it's getting harder to obtain wooden blades for making trophy oars.

It might be worth getting in contact with Mark Seal if you haven't already.
