My wife has scrapped her old fax machine that used thermal paper and we ha
ve 4 rolls of paper to get rid of. I know they will burn this winter in th
e fireplace, but I thought maybe someone here might have some other ideas (
almost everyone here is quite creative) that are not related to bathroom us

Bisphenol-a, nasty stuff. I don't know if burning will destroy it, but
it would be pretty reckless to do so without knowing ahead of time.
Ebay or put it in the landfill where the leachate is collected.
There are still some people who have the machines...
And Staples/Office Max/Depot stock it.
I brought my old rolls to one of the local
"toner/ink refill" stores, figuring they
might have a customer or two.
Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key

I have done that, given things I don't need to the stores that sell
it. They can either give it to someone or sell it and keep the
money, afaic. I just don't want it to be wasted. This might not
work as well at a store like Staples, where most clerks don't really
care about the customers or the store, iiuc. A smaller stationery
store, if there are any. Not that they weren't nice
to me at Staples. 3 or 4 years ago, the printer I was thinking of
buying was 100 dollars for months. One day, it was 150 in one place
on the web, adn also every place else, straight from 100. I went
straight to Staples, and iirc their price was 150 also, and I told the
first clerk I saw that the price just went up and I'd been watching
it, and asked him if I could have it at 100. He said, If I have it.
And he got it in back for me in 3 or 4 minutes and sold it at 100.
My guess, is that the larger chains can only
sell items which are in the computer, and which
have scan bars. As such, the donated rolls would
be pitched into the trash.
Smaller store might be more appreciative.
