Tesnioner/Idler Pulley refurbishment?

After listening to the what appeared to be the sound of skateboard wheels spinning around under the bonnet for a month or two, i've finally replaced the belt tensioner pulley and idler pulley on my 2004 318i touring with brand new units.

Seems a bit of a waste to throw the old ones away when it's just the bearings that have dried up after 60,000 miles of use. Is there any way to refurbish the units at all or have they simply had it? No doubt they'll need to be replaced again in another 60,000 miles or so....
