Anyone know of an environmentally friendly way of disposing of old used CD's. I have a hundred or so and don't like to just chuck them in the garbage. I have no artistic talent so am not interested in creating various objets d'arte with them!

What do you recommend?

Thanks

I hate the solution of "make art with them" because the world can only hold so much crap art before it winds up in the trash.

it might be a slight hassle, but I'd check with the local shred it companies. i'm sure they have a way of shredding and disposing of the tiny pieces.

In Toronto they now recycle electronic waste, and that includes CDs. See if the same project is underway in your jurisdiction.

Do you not have stores in your area that buy used CD's?

Mine go in our blue bag and is picked up with the rest of my recyclables.

If the tunes are any good I'd be glad to take them since I can't stand compressed music ;-)

If these are music CDs, I'll take them if they are workable. I never toss music away

How about giving them to your local library?

Sorry gang but these are all computer discs, CD-R's with years of files and data that are no longer relevant to my needs.

I will get in touch with the local Apple store and municipal authorities to see what they suggest.

Thanks for the input.
