Of course! (Unless there's some type of "chemical thing" I am not aware of).

Crush them, then sift them through a screen to get most of them equal sized.

I have also seen people (Amber- Naos) slump them in the kiln and make cabs out of them.

When I have tried to make seconds into frit, I end up with mud color frit.

Or you can clean them and fuse them into puddles and make magnets, earrings,, and pins...
