    You might want to check and see if any of these are valuable before you destroy them.

    Use them as edging for a walkway or garden. They're easy to push into the ground. They help keep unwanted grass out of where you don't want it. Or, keep soil in areas where you want it. Putting them all at about same height makes a neat scalloped edge & border.

    Another way to use them. Put record inside an old pillowcase & iron about 2/3 to 3/4 of it with a hot dry iron just until it softens. (Keep iron moving during ironing process to prevent melting vinyl). When softened & pliable, remove record from pillowcase & bend bottom of record up toward top edge of record to form a pocket. Next drill 2 tiny holes in top section of record to screw it to backside of cabinet door to hold instruction sheets & manuals for countertop appliances to have at fingertips when needed rather than in a drawer or box to have to look thru to find.

    Hope these suggestions help you put them to some good use.
