Vinyl records are not recyclable. They should be disposed of in your grey bin. Cardboard covers can be removed and recycled in your blue bin

Get selling and make some money

  • Before you get rid of your records, do some research to see any of them are rare or collector items - they might raise more than you anticipated!
  • Search online for specialist buyers - there are still some companies that are interested in buying your old vinyl records including Cash4records, Vinyl Exchange and Vinyl Records.
  • Or sell them on websites like eBay and Gumtree.

Pass them on

  • Ask family and friends if they would like them.
  • Go online to give them away at sites like Freecycle and Freegle.
  • Check locally - a community project near you may have a use for them.
  • Sell items locally at car boots, nearly new and bring and buy sales.
  • Advertise them in the local paper or on local noticeboards.

What else can I do with them?

Get creative - there are lots of videos on YouTube that show how you can make new items from your old record collection.
