Default WS waste disposal.

Does anybody know of what happens to the old boards and equipment we discard?

Personally, i've never had to dispose of an old board as I have sold most of my old equipment, and the things I haven't sold, are still in my garage.

At my sailing club in Greece, i have counted more than 15 discarded old broken cracked or just obsolete boards thrown in a heap. At six or seven other clubs that i've been to i've seen similar scenes of discarded equipment.
Has anyone else seen old gear just left to rot?
Does anyone know of the best way to dispose of this gear?
Is recycling out of the question?
Wouldn't the responsible disposal of possibly 100,000's of old boards (world wide) be another way that windsurfers (not just GREEK one's) could be more environmentally aware?
