Is there a way to recycle old bike helmets?

Does REI offer any way to recycle bike helmets (but assume same challenge exists for any helmet)? I have a few old helmets at home as don’t want to put in landfill but can’t find any viable alternatives yet

@Llamas Thanks for reaching out!

This is a great quesiton! We'll check in with our sustainability team and see what we can find out for you. We'll circle back here in the community when we find out more information. Thanks!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

@REI-JohnJ Our town has a vigorous recyclling program.  I simply put my unussable helmets in thee recycle bin.

Actually, I am guilty of reetaining old hlmets (climbing and cycling) well past their useful life time - in a pinch, some pro is better than non at all.
