Where to recycle floppy disks

I have boxes of unopened floppy disks. Is there an organization that could put them to good use? If not, can someone suggest a best place to recycle? Thanks!

You can recycle those with any certified electronic recycling company. There is a directory of eStewards and R2 certified companies on earth911

Floppy disk is no longer usable, I guess what you can do is sell them or donate to a company that are buying scrap, they know what to do on that, the chip board and the metal parts are good for recycling. And they have knowledge on waste sorting.
