Recycling old climbing holds

I run a small climbing wall at a university in North Carolina. We have a selection of holds that are no longer usable (blown apart, broke in half, slopers that now look more like pockets, etc.). Does anyone know of any companies that will recycle old holds? Typically we sell/donate our used-but-usable supply. I'm just trying to figure out what to do with the unusably broken ones. Thanks in advance.

We also sell off our retired holds, but when they're too broken to do anything with them they get thrown in the trash.

There was one company that would take them in, grind them up, and add the grit to stretch out the resin for new holds, but I can't remember who it was. You had to pay the shipping though so it was a no-go (for us at least).
