If you're like us, you might have a large spool of CD-Rs that fail to load or recognize on our drives after years of being stored away or that are scarred with scratches. Instead of throwing them out, consider doing the green thing and recycle them by sending them to the CD Recycling Center...

You can now just pack up your collection of damaged CDs and DVDs to one of the many CD Recycling Center locations where they'll be recycled to be used a variety of products, such as:
- Automotive industry parts
- Raw materials to make plastics (Discs are ground into a gravel-like substance, which is sold to companies that melt it down and convert it to plastic)
- Office equipment
- Alarm boxes and panels, street lights, and electrical cable insulation
- Jewel cases
