Take the head off and put it in metal recycling.

Whenever I have a situation like this, I say 'Goodwill'--they've never refused anything I drop off, but I don't drop off junk either.

How about a bird bath?

The "eyes" of the dish make a dandy high tech pencil holder.

My mother, being Scottish, was never inclined to toss things unless they were really hopelessly broken. Some years back in her prior home, an ancient table fan finally gave up the ghost and she put it out with the trash. Before the trash pickup, she looked out and saw it was gone and wondered why anyone would have picked up the old fan as it really was kaput. Next trash pickup, the same old fan reappeared... this time with the neighbor's trash.

you could try to place it behind your wifi router to reflect and enhance your signal.
