Thread: Disposal of Straw Butts.

  1. #1

    Question Disposal of Straw Butts.

    At our archery club we are renewing our worn out straw butts for the summer season. Being the only club member who owns a white van and therefore the unofficial club logistics officer! But seriosly anything to help the club out and keep those subs down Does anyone know where straw butts can be recycled or a good method of recycling/ reusing them for another purpose? I really don't want to take them to the landfill.

    Our club, Blue Arrows is in Ipswich Suffolk so it would have to be close by otherwise it wouldn't be worth the recycling/diesel equation.

    Thanks, Silverbow.

    If you shoot outdoors on your own club land host a fire arrow comp using old bosses as targets and have a BBQ (not over the bosses), make an evening of it (Non alcholic evening, before anyone says anything).

    We have 2/3 to dispose of and this seems to be the easiest way, next to uncoiling them and dumping in someone else's industrial wheely bin

    Thanks but we shoot in the grounds of Suffolk Police Headquarters so a bonfire is out of the question, well not without a complimentary accomodation from HM Prisons!

    A local allotment association may be interested in them

    Or your local authority probably collects organic matter for composting
