What can I do with my old hair straighteners, since they no longer work?

I have few old hair straighteners which have burned out over the years (I have very big, frizzy, and curly hair), and I'm trying to figure out the best way to discard them--is it best to just throw them away, or can I recycle them?

All four of them are the kind that you plug in. Their plates are ceramic and tourmaline, and the handles are plastic. Three of them are CHI straighteners, and one is made by a brand called Jilbére.

Since straighteners are so expensive, I'm wondering if there's any productive way to get rid of them, rather than just throw them out. (Even though they no longer work). Any ideas?

In advance, thank you so much. :)

Best Buy will recycle Flat Irons in my state. That link lets you check if they accept them in your state (under Home and then Personal Care).
