Assistance League. They bag them, sell them, and the proceeds fund charitable activities.

If it's a very large collection, Alcoholics Anonymous can help.

Art From Scrap or the Assistance League of SB take them. The Goleta Library was collecting them for their community free crafts events involving repurposing corks but has a single donor with LOTS of them so they do not need any more at this time.
