Please do not dispose. At the time, we had a chapter suite (we now have a townhouse--still not a ton of room) and the tradition was to gift it to the President who appeared at the time of the composite. Could that be an option? If a former prez doesn't want it, perhaps an alumna who appears on it would love to have it?

Check with your Institution

University Archives is storing ours, frames and all. This may also be an avenue for you to explore should you choose.

Oh a historical composite calendar! you could make 1-3 different editions with different years.

As long as Vantine's did your composites you can always call and they will replace yours at a reasonable price. They were super nice about it too.

A few years ago when this thread appeared I wondered (but neglected to ask) if the companies responsible for taking the composite photographs and/or assembling the composites might consider scan-and sell of composites by any sorority to be copyright violations. Just as one shouldn't scan or photocopy a copyrighted photograph (stamped as such on the back) instead the sorority will contact the original photography studio for a legal (and probably clearer) print from them. Companies I am familiar with have taken composite pix for all the campus groups for many years, and are either still in business or were bought by someone else locally who still hold the negatives for the older composites.
