Old CDs and DVDs Should not lay in the trash Recycling programs are in place Where you can donate your old stash
In the 90s, you may have listened to a lot of Boys II Men and REM, and you probably had the words to Home Alone and The Little Mermaid memorized, but these days, your old CDs and DVDs are collecting dust on shelves.When it’s time for spring cleaning, what should you do with your old unwanted discs?
First things first, don’t chuck them in the bin.Most CDs and jewel cases are not biodegradable, and while it might be a neat thought to go pyro on the movies and music of your past, burning them only releases toxic fumes into the air, which isn’t good for any of us.
These days, there are environmentally-safe recycling options, creative crafts, and volunteer organizations that can take your entertainment trash and turn it into a treasure, without it ever hitting a landfill.
