Map disposal: recycle, reuse, donate

My father just recently passed away. He was a geologist and had a very extensive topo map collection. Nothing necessarily old or valuable just complete sets of topos of all sizes for several states. (Utah, Nevada among others) They are dated late 1960’s-early 1980’s

We are trying to find the best options for their future. It doesn’t seem right to just throw them into the trash but the digital world I’m wondering if that is something we should be considering? The maps are currently in Utah.

Please advise. Thank you!!

@Shoegeek,
You can contact a university to see if their geological or geophysical departments could use them - perhaps their library?

Put them up on eBay. If they have value someone will buy them.

@Shoegeek,
Find a book dealer in Salt Lake City. There are scads of them. Tell him you have some maps pertaining to Utah. Maps are a great investment. Do not throw them away.
