If records are in good condition, you may be able to sell them through vinyl record stores or online apps. 


You can donate old records to thrift stores or secondhand stores like Goodwill OC, The Salvation Army or other charitable organizations. Some libraries also accept old vinyl records and allow guests to check them out. 


You can create unique DIY craft projects using old vinyl records.
