Targets splinters after trapshooting contaminate the nature - how to solve this problem

Trapshooting or clay-pigeon shooting was invented in England at the end of the 18th century. The drive of the game was to improve hunters shooting skills. 

Nowadays, trapshooting is a very popular sport with world championships and Olympic events. 

How does trapshooting work? Targets are launched into the air with a special machine at varying angles and speeds initially unknown to the shooter. The shooter fires at the targets with a shotgun, and the score depends on the hit count given specific rules.

Overall, the targets are discs of about 11 cm in diameter and about 3 cm in thickness. The discs' weight is about 100 grams. Clay or limestone are typical materials for the targets. 

А result of the shooting, a huge amount of pieces and full targets fall down on the field. 

What is the solution to this problem?
