What to do with old rubber CTL tracks?

I just replaced the tracks on my John Deere CT332. What do people typically do with the old tracks? One has split but the other has some tread still. Can you take them to be scrapped?

Cut them and use as mats for driving across grass and sidewalks.

Around here you have to pay to dispose of them. I have cut up excavator tracks and stacked em up in trash can. Takes a few weeks.

We actually use them in training strongman. We drag the 690 lb old rubber traxx around the asphalt it's only about really lifting up about 220 lbs. the drag is great for hamstring development and it's a pita . And yes we are all nutz!!!😜

Hitch it between 2 dozers and have a pulling contest, if it's an ASV track, it might turn into a Stretch Armstrong event.

in the trailer park, with the tractor tire flower beds, sit them on their side, and fill with topsoil, makes a good strawberry planter, too!
