Can Old Trophies Be Recycled?

Companies including Total Awards and Promotions, Inc, TC reTrophy and Lamb Rewards and Engraving accept old trophies for recycling. These companies disassemble old trophies, replace damaged or chipped parts, re-engrave plates and retouch bases. The refurbished trophies then go to charities, nonprofit clubs or resale at a cheaper price.

Some parts of old trophies are unusable in refurbished trophies, such as plastics, glasses and other metals. Most of the companies send these parts to other recycling centers. ART Collective accepts old trophies made with acrylic and recycles them into some form of art. Individuals can also use their creative ideas and make something crafty out of old trophies, such as a decorative artwork in the yard or a terrarium.
