any way to reuse large plastic posters ?

today was here a day of elections to city heads the day is over and the streets are full of posters up to 1 X 3 M size that are going to go to trash in the following days most of the posters are made of 3 kinds of plastic simple plastic like large shopping bags - it is waterproof and strechy and loses mechanical strength when stretched. available in size of 0.5 M X up to few M weave of flat nylon strings - not fully waterproof but very strong. available in size of up to 1 X 3 M. with holes reinforced with metal thingy in 4 corners plastic reinforced with nylon fiber - combines properties of them both. available in size of 0.8 X 1.4 M. with factory-made folded and sewd edges for installation on rope etc all are made of white material printed on one side with names / photos / slogans etc in semitransparent paint. passes some amount of diffused sunlight there are also tons of flyers and paper posters (up to 0.5 X 0.7 M) and the tickets used for voting laying all over the streets any good ideas what that stuff can be usefull for ? especially the plastic and nylon posters

A compound parabolic cooker. I believe these are more useful because they maintain the heat on the cooking pot much longer than a parabolic cooker does.
The instructable shows how to make a template for this type of solar cooker.
melt them and pour the plastic into molds. Make Christmas ornaments.

There was a way to use corrugated plastic as a solar water heater but I can't find it.
