Can you make money from old rubbish? Certainly websites like Discflipper and MusicMagpie make good money trading old DVDs and CDs. There are people who buy old books cheaply and sell them for a profit on Amazon. Old toys and old bric-a-brac can all be traded for money, particularly if they offer some antique value. Even old, broken electronic gadgets can be traded to be used by people seeking spare parts which would otherwise be unavailable. Old cars similarly can be mined for spares and therefore offer a means to make money. Then there’s scrap metal; there are plenty of people who make a decent living trading scrap metal. Got a pile of old bricks at the back of your garden? Don’t throw them away as someone might just need bricks of that type. There has always been money in old junk for those with a keen eye for hidden value. And it’s never been easier to sell old junk with websites like eBay. Even dirt offers a money making opportunity. Many people have made fortunes by processing rubbish or waste materials. Even if it can’t be sold it can be cleaned up for other people, hence there’s always money to be made somewhere.
