I found that I was able to get rid of some odd little circuit boards by
posting an extremely accurate note about them (each part, device
number, etc.) - I got an unsolicited email from a parts reseller who
offered me a few $$ for the lot. The $$ covered shipping, a nice meal
for the family, and I felt that I had helped someone...

Of course, YMMV ;^)

If you truly have a large collection of minor parts, maybe the thing to
do is to gather them all together and in a detailed posting offer them
up on ebay as a single lot. A repair shop/hobbiest may find a use for

Again, YMMV...
