If you have a drawer or cabinet full of unwanted medals you won from racing or academic events (like many swimmers have from their high school days), you can do more than let them collect dust. The nonprofit Sports Medal Recycling wants to use your medals to raise money for community sporting events. When you send in your medals, the metal, textiles and even plastics are separated and sent to a recycler; all the proceeds raised benefit charity sporting events.
