CDs and DVDs are EVERYWHERE. Especially in recording studios, mastering studios, and band rehearsal facilities. Think about how many one-offs, bad mixes, bad copies, bad burns etc. that you actually make. All jokes about making coasters and frisbees aside, these discs will pile up fast and they seriously need to stay out of the trash.
Here’s how you and your studio can play your part: Take an empty box, and place our sign on it that reads “Recycle bad /unwanted discs here” and place it in your control room near your mixer or burner. Watch this box fill after a month or sometimes even a week! Please pledge today to never throw a disc in the trash again. It is very harmful to our environment. The best way to have your discs recycled is to send them in to our CD Recycling Center. Sure the postage will cost a little bit, but it’s a small amount to help our planet. Think of it this way… “In your business, if you use, sell, promote, distribute, or manufacture compact discs, it is your responsibility to promote how to recycle them. Compacts Discs, when recycled properly, will stop unnecessary pollution, conserve natural resources, and help our environmental substantially.” Need photo
The CD Recycling Center focuses on proper disc collection, sorting, handling and recycling. Our mail-in initiative is important for environmental supporters that recycle their discs, and realize curbside recycling does not properly recycle the #7 plastic that CDs and DVDs are manufactured from. We have zero landfill waste here at the center, and we can achieve this by focusing just on CDs, DVDs and related packaging. Curbside cannot properly collect, sort, store and process a few dozen, hundreds, or even thousands of discs. Since we collect millions, it is very easy for us to successfully recycle them.
