Disposal of canoes
Bit of a weird one, but does anyone know how i would go about disposing of canoes?
They were left in our property when we bought it, and are both damaged.
We've called the council and their large item disposal team wont take it as it "wont fit into the crusher van" so i dont know what else to do. Not sure if the local recycling centre/tip would take it, but it then means having to get it there as it wont fit in my car and i have no roof bars/racks
they are the slalom type canoes, like this and both have the paddles too:

Have some fun with a sledge hammer or a reciprocating saw.

What material are they - poly carb or glass fibre?

other option is to do viking burial set em alight and push them down the canal
i think chopping them up is looking the only option, as we want rid of them ASAP

i'll be honest i dont know, they've been sat down the side of the conservatory since we moved in, and i only moved them to lay them with the other bits we want disposing of

Put em outside with a "free please take me sign"?
Anyone got building works local with a skip you can throw them in?

nope unfortunately nowhere to put them locally. im thinking cutting up and taking to recycling/tip is the only option

Check your local Scout group or Uni don't want them. They may either be able to patch them up or use them for silliness. Otherwise freecycle or put a sign on them asking for them not to be stolen thank you very much.

Try using them somewhere in the north sea, go missing for a few years, get your missus to claim on the insurance, and then come back home when all has settled down.
Plan without a flaw

have you got a local amenity tip?
Tie them to the roof of the car and taken them down there! or ask a friend with a van

Ditio on what TechMonkey said lots of scout groups would take them off ur hands. If you need contacts please PM me and i'll do what i can.

I'll ignore the insurance scam if its all the same with you
glennda: we have got a tip yes, not really local (they closed our local one to save money!). but again i don't even know if they will accept them

fawkers: when i removed them, they were full of water inside (where it had leaked in over the months before we moved in) and have the noses snapped off. the insides are absolutely filthy, covered in grime, algae etc and there are some bits of foam (or something) inside too. personally i wouldn't feel comfortable passing these on to be used at all, they need disposing of, otherwise i would have considered it

Yes i think if the noses are snapped they've had it
