After some heavy culling, I had about 2,000 junk LPs and 800 45s, ready to discard. The local recycling center can't take the vinyl as it's not a "known" formulation. However, I did shuck all the covers and innersleeves off and was able to recycle those. That left me with about 700 lbs of trash vinyl. I have to pay by the pound at the landfill, so I got the idea to post a photo and list these for "FREE" on the local buy/sell/swap Facebook exchange, angling for crafters & hoarders. I just had a couple come and haul off the 45s and about 25% of the LPs. Very Happy With luck I'll have more takers for what's left out in my shop.

That's a high stack of 78's....maybe we should have an RCG Stack-Em-High contest.

I suggest firing up the oven as Etsy could use another "bowl" vendor!

Those are actually LPs, but yes a high stack. I put the rest into boxes and had thirteen running feet of junk records.

I've had a few people suggest "make them into potato chip bowls." Which I've done before. But, is there really a market for selling these? Outside of a few craft fairs, where can a guy sell these silly bowls, particularly in a location like rural Wyoming?

On a positive note, I've got a gal coming over on Wednesday to take away a few hundred. She wants to use them as wall decoration.
