What does everyone do with old posters? I've been told we are supposed to throw them away, but I don't know. Since taking over, I haven't had the heart to throw them away and I'm getting quite the stock pile. Any suggestions?

True, major "eBone" fodder!
And to echo what Paul above mentions: some theatre operators will put all the old posters in a large box, put a label on it with "FREE" and put it in the lobby for the patrons to have fun with it ... or even let staff have first dibs before putting them out.

I have given them to non-profit organizations to sell or auction to raise funds. Technically the distributors still own them but I have never received any instructions regarding what to do with them.

I do that about twice a year. The huge "BUS SHELTER" sized posters get offered to my kids first, the employees second. Regular sized "ONE SHEETS" get rummaged through by the employees first, then get rolled individually and placed vertically in a box in the corner of the lobby. What happens to them after that is not up to me.

Depending on who you work for, you might consider working your left-over posters into a raffle contest and announce the winners on whatever one of your down times are. You'll be drawing people in and possibly get an extra ticket sale out of it.
