Did u take it to an apple shop to see how much to repair? I spilled water over my wife's MacBook Pro (made me v popular). It went "fizz" then died. Made an appointment with an Apple Genius, they replaced the onboard PSU and it's been good as new since (this was maybe 3-4 years ago).
If u are sure u don't want it, it's more valuable fixed than broken.
Alternatively, there may be companies near you that recycle electronics, they may pay you for it.
If you have any functional accessories (power lead, etc) they could also be sold on eBay, etc.

Sell it on eBay... I've sold plenty of phones, tablets, computers, & laptops for parts to repair...

I will say this... If you have personal info (bank, etc) on it, I would not sell it without being able to first clear it. There are some folks that buy broken items like that, just to repair them and steal the info.

Yeah, definitely not something you'd want to sell as is.

My daughter killed hers with a full glass of water. Took it to the Apple store and they had it in the back for about 15 minutes. Fixed.

they have a policy how many components can be damaged. I had too many for in store service. Shippings flat rate for outside repair.
