Don't bin it, just store it until you have enough tires to bother shipping them off to get fixed.
Last time I did that , and it wasnt Rons fault, I got hit with customs duty when they arrived back in Ireland. Customs werent even interested in the fact I sent them out in the first place.
Effectivley negated the cost of getting them repaired.

For what it's worth, I was in a pinch and glued the basetape on with some Loctite flexable adhesive that I had. I will never use anything else again, it's perfect. Dries fast and no issues when riding. Rode it about 600 miles or so before the tire finally wore out. When I peeled the tire back off the rim the tape held.

It's seamless construction, so if you mean whether it can be open for repair, answer is nope.
Smaller punctures can be fixed as any other tub using sealant.
