Carbon brake disk waste

Dear Members,
I am looking for an excess stock of waste aircraft carbon brake pads for further processing outside the aviation industry (especially not for R44 Pilot's School we run here).
Carbon can be both Non-Woven (Includes A380, 767, 777, A340, 747 platforms) and Random Fiber Carbon (Included A330 Carbon and MD-11 carbon) that are not fit for repair or further use. Discs can be broken in half, painted red or deliberately drilled to ensure no further use in the aviation.
I know for a fact someone in US is stocks them, someone suggested The AA Tulsa Shop, but cannot find the ends. Anyone worked for brake MRO? Do they stock them?

Would appreciate any input.

Have you tried FL Technics in your part of the world ?
I believe that they have a wheels and brake shop.

Meggitt and Goodrich (both in UK) and Safran (in France) all reclaim carbon disks and would have waste. You would have to contact them to see if they were willing to let any go. Every W&B shop works by exchange with the OEMs, and WTL packs would still have a residual value as service exchange cores.
