How can I reuse or recycle large pieces of cork?

cork_tiles.jpgWe’ve had an email from Tony asking about recycling cork – but NOT wine bottle corks (which we covered back in the day):

I am looking at ways that cork (in slabs not wine bottles unfortunately) can be recycled.

Given his email address, I suspect he’ll be particularly interested in large-scale industrial recycling ideas not crafty reuses for each slab/piece – but we’ve got some thin sheets of cork (a former noticeboard) to reuse too so ideas for both case are welcome.

Anyone know any companies that take large pieces of cork for recycling? Or have any ideas (other than noticeboards) for surplus around the home?
