Default 40lbs of plugs

OK does anyone have a use for old spark plugs??
I am helping a friend clean up her husbands garage(he passed away) and there is about a 5 gallon bucket of spark plugs some even are new, but most are old and used, some have boxes some don't
IF anyone wanted them I'd give to them for free
I/m at zip code 18237, NE Pa
if not I will trash them I guess, BUT figured I offer them up in case someone has a use for them I don;t know about??
Thanks for looking if nothing lese!

If nothing else they might be good for an art project. Years ago we got something like 10,000 lbs of radial engine sparkplugs. They were new and sealed in clear plastic tubes but had been out in the weather and some had sucked moisture into the container. We sorted through them for weeks getting all the bad ones out, when I closed my eyes at night all I saw was a cascade of sparkplugs, still remember the number RHB-29N. When we were done sorting there were 3 or 4 50 gallon drums of bad plugs, one of the customers that was buying good plugs asked what we were going to do with the bad plugs and when we said scrap them he said he'd take them. He had his kids remove them all from the plastic tubes, then he had new asphalt done in his parking lot and they sprinkled the sparkplugs over the surface and mashed them in, it was a pretty cool looking parking lot

I guess that was a unique parking lot for sure, I don't have that many, Thank god too, and I don't know anyone that wants them, or I would have given them away already LOL
I didn't think there was much use for old /used one's
but hey, never know till you ask
I will just scrap them I guess, afterall I have a few tons of scrap metal now I need to haul away some day, IF prices ever go up to where its worth the time!
scrap is dirt cheap right now here, like $2.50 a 100lbs
a few months back it was like $ 7-100 lbs??
should have hauled it away then LOL
