Welcome to Sellcds the Internets number 1 resource for people looking to sell old CDs, DVDs and video games quickly and easily in return for the highest cash payments.
Why You Should Recycle Old Cds, DVDs and Games
On average each household in the UK has an average of 115 discs including CDs, DVDs and video games, however only 5% of these discs are ever used on a regular basis. Its estimated that every year in the UK over 2500 tonnes of household waste that is ending up at landfill includes unwanted discs. Old discs that end up at landfill are causing major damage too the environment as they are made up of many toxic plastics.
When waste ends up at landfill it can have a really bad impact on our planet’s environment. As waste decomposes it releases carbon dioxide and methane gases into the atmosphere, its these gases that contribute in a big way to global warming.
Earn Cash by Selling Your Unwanted Discs
As many people are making the switch to digital, there are now many specialized recycling sites appearing online that will take your unwanted discs off you in exchange for cash payments.
If all the unwanted music CDs alone were sent in for recycling it would add up to a massive £21 million and that is without the many millions of DVDs and console games. £21 million is enough money to buy over 75,000 flights to New York or even 466 Porcshe Boxters!
So why not do our planet and your pocket a favour and sort through all your DVD, CD and games collections. Have a little fun playing and watching the discs you not seen for a long time then pile them up and send them in too be recycled for cash. Selling old CDs, games and DVDs will not only make a big difference to the environment but in these poor economic times will also help us all get some extra money in our pockets.

The UK government has recently announced that they may close the loophole that allows companies in the Channel islands to sell cds, DVDs, video games and other items worth less than £18 VAT free.
Any companies currently located in the Channel Islands can sell cds, DVDs and other small goods 20% cheaper than those located on the mainland without affecting their own profits.
Big retailers such as Amazon, Play, Asda, Tesco and HMV already use the loophole by setting up in the Channel Islands. However smaller retailers who cannot afford an offshore base cannot compete so have ended up going out of business.
If the government does close the loophole its estimated by the BBC that up to a thousand jobs could be lost. For the massive retailers its unlikely to make much difference.
Tesco have said that they have always passed the 20% saving onto their customers, so if the loophole does close their entertainment CDs and DVDs will be 20% more expensive. However all other retailers will have to put their prices up 20% so it won’t make any difference to their amount of sales.
Any companies that loose out from the closure of the loophole may start sourcing their entertainment CDs and DVDs from wholesalers outside of the EU. However the record companies will probably fight against this as the wholesale price for CDs and DVDs in non EU countries is much lower.
The possible closure of the VAT loophole has come as great news for independent retailers who are happy that their recent campaigning has actually taken effect.

Recent research has found that UK residents have an estimated £1.8 billion worth of unused computer and console games lay around their homes.
The results of the poll carried out by SwapGame found that one in five people have ten or more video games that they haven’t played for at least 6 months and a further 6% have around 25 video games collecting dust in drawers and cupboards.
Surprisingly the poll also discovered that 10% actually throw old video games in the bin when they are completed. This is crazy due to the amount that a new games costs and how much it can be traded in for on sites like SwapGame.
SwapGame was the first website in the UK to offer an online trade in service, this allows gamers to trade in their old video games for cash on credit to spend on the site.

Many of us will have CDs that won’t play anymore due to them being left out of the boxes and have manged to get a few light scratches on them. The following is a few ideas on how scratched CDs can be repaired:
- Polish the plastic surface.
- If polishing doesn’t work then use toothpaste. That’s right simply polish the CD using a cotton bud with a little toothpaste on until the scratches disappear. After cleaning the scratches wash the CD in water before playing it again.
- If there are scratches on the CD that the toothpaste doesn’t remove then try using a metal polish such as Brasso to remove the remaining ones using the same method as above. After using the metal polish rub a little Vaseline from the centre to the outside.
- If the CD still won’t play then look for the scratch that is causing the problem and repeat the methods above.
