What do I do with my (terrible, uninteresting) discardable photographs and negatives?

I went through my old photos and pulled out the ones I really want to keep, which leaves easily a couple shoeboxes full of ones to throw out. Plus the negatives, which aren't really associated with the photos in any way (so if you wanted to make a new print of a specific shot, you'd have to hunt through a lot of negatives). I don't want to have these hanging around anymore, but I feel bad about just throwing them away.
If they were older or more interesting, I'd give them to a historical society or ebay them. But they're late 80s and 90s pictures of teenagers/college students making silly faces, many with my thumb in the shot, etc. Really, really boring stuff.
What on earth do I do with these? No craft project ideas, please - I want them gone, and I have about 4863784 craft projects on my to do list anyway. Should I just get over myself and toss them? Can I recycle them somewhere? Is there a group that might want them?
