3. A few years ago...
part of our collection (60s-80s) was ruined. We salvaged some of the ones we really loved. We still have quite a few left. My 18yo son plays them sometimes.
In some ways it was nice to have this choice made for us! My husband somehow put most of the music on the computer, so it's still like having them, just without the space they took up!
I wouldn't have thrown them away if they had not been ruined. If you are thinking of just tossing them, put them up on craigslist or something. It might make an old collector happy, and it would keep the records out of the landfill.
