We are always looking for ways to recycle just about everything and we recently discovered it is possible to recycle your old CDs, CDrs, and DVDs. The CD Recycling Center of America aims to provide its recycling services to individuals and businesses– all you need to do is pay for postage!
Here is what they had to say,
“Each year, billions of compact discs (CDs, CDr’s and DVDs) are produced, while millions of them are reaching our landfills and incinerators. Why are they not getting recycled? Because most people don’t know what to do with them! Please play your part in helping to save our environment by starting to recycle your old and unwanted discs today. It’s simple to set up your own compact disc recycling program in your home or office. Here’s how: you neatly collect them and send them to us.
We recycle the disc, the paper booklet and any other paper or cardboard that comes with the disc. Please separate all components prior to sending them in to the recycling center. If you shred your discs due to sensitive data, please neatly collect the scraps and send them in to the center. These plastic disc scraps can be mixed in with other un-shredded discs, but please don’t send in other shredded materials with your discs.”
