You could sell them on your business web site (HDD age and up time would need to be documented)

It's going to be hard to sell used hard drives. The cost to just go buy a new one is worth it versus the risk of buying a used one and having it die right away.

How big are they (storage amount) and how much were you trying to sell them for? How old are they?

Collectors may buy them but for todays use ... no way, flash drives are bigger.

There used to be a computer hardware recyling place down the street and they has 10gb Seagate HDD's and old motherboards, like I'm talking pentium1 mmx 199mhz processor.
