I've recently been having a clear out, and I am unsure of what to do with 2-3 bags of old CDs that I no longer want.

The majority of them are albums from the 90s and the 2000s including the likes of: Steps, The Corrs, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Craig David etc (None are anything special)

Should I just bin them all or throw them in to a music recycling bank?

A charity shop might want them. Music Magpie will probably give you 10p to 20p per title. Simply not worth the time.

Go to CEX they will give you money off something else in store. See how much exchange value you'll get on webuy.com.

Today I took in a couple of old unwanted CDs and walked out with Rock Steady by No Doubt.

Yeah I wouldn't advise music magpie tbh, I was clearing out not too long ago and they were only going to give me 3 for a Beyonce DVD that was only 2 months old. All of my stuff only came to about 15 actually and there was about twenty items so its really not worth it!

You'll get about a tenner or 15 for that many CDs from the likes of Music Magpie. Either that or you fire them into a charity shop.

Why not put them on eBay as a job lot. If you can't post them (pretty likely if you have 3 bags full!) then put collection only. I expect there will still be interest.

Or even Gumtree, which is free. I sold a job lot of DVDs once on there and the guy came and picked them up very quickly, I only had to walk to the door to hand them over.

I'd go to a charity shop or Cash Converters with them.

music magpie will give you around 30p each unless they are collectable albums such as with a dvd or rare.
in which case you;ll get around 1.90 each better than binning them there's also zapper who do the same.
if they are people not sellable then take them to a charity shop or there is also gumtree which is free to list.

This. Some might not be worth more than a few pence but others may be a couple of quid each.

Interesting what people have said about music magpie

We sold goodness how many CD's from my Nan's house for almost 40 and some CD's were well over a 1 hm. It is bit of a rip off but all of that money has gone into a fund that's going to charity so we didn't mind, particularly as charity shops wouldn't have took them and we didn't want to bin them if we could avoid it.
