I have a ton of old game CDs just lying around that: I’ll never play again, are scratched beyond repair, so what the heck am I supposed to do with them? Well I’ve been really interested in recycling whatever I can so I looked into CD recycling and found this site!
I’m starting you off on the About Us page, so that you can check out their Mission Statement, and have easy access to the FAQ if you have any questions. What you should really check out on this page is the About Recycling link. It describes in detail what a CD is made of – where the materials come from – and what they can be recycled into. After you check that out – click the Register link at the top of the page. Fill out the Registration form with the necessary information and click Submit.
You’ll be automatically logged in once you you’ve registered. You’ll be shown the correct way to pack a box of recyclables, and how not to pack them. Click Submit Recycling to get started recycling. You’ll input the number of each item you have to recycle, and then click Submit – this will take you to a page where you’ll get the address of where to ship your package to.
Then you just pack up your CDs/DVDs and send them off to the address to be recycled. You do have to pay for shipping, but you can use low cost services like media mail. They way I did it was to find all the disks I wanted to recycle and just send one box. Rather that doing a little bit at time. I feel it was more cost effective, because you can get a ton of CDs into a box!
This is a great way to recycle all those disks that you have just laying around. I had stacks of trial software, old games, scratched up music discs, and now I have a nice clean CD drawer!
