Question Are old 3+ gallon toilets worth anything?

I remember reading years ago they were highly sought after. Not sure if the tanks are worth anything or the old base/bowl is.

Old, high volume toilets haven't been worth anything for decades, since the low flush ones became reliable. Take it to the landfill.

Back in the days when the low flush toilets came out and were really bad I heard people stocking up on the old style, new not used ones.

That is history, put an ad on Craig's List and give them away vs filling up the landfill!

Habitat will still take them. I gave them with other stuff. Asked driver if they would take them and he said they sell. Otherwise they are a landfill material.

Google "Toilet Barbecue". The bowl is a grill, the tank is a cooler.
