A site called Donate a Gift Card has taken care of this sticky issue. You can take those remainder amounts you’re never going to use on old gift cards and donate them to the cause of your choice.

If there’s absolutely nothing left on a gift card, you can check out this coaster idea covered in a Treehugger post, or get in touch with the folks at Earthworks. They recycle scrap PVC (which is what most gift cards are made of). After I finish (or get tired of) cleaning the kitchen, I’m going to drop them a line to find out how to do it.
