Can it be recycled?

Compact Discs (CDs)

Check with your local council.  Compact discs are now collected at some local recycling centres but this service does vary across the country.

What else can I do with them?

There are lots of organisations that recycle CD's and DVD's - check out the internet to find them.  A simple search on "recycling cds" will bring you a list of organisations who will take them.  Usually you will just need to pay postage.  Alternatively you can donate or sell your CDs, or re-use them in a creative way.

  • Donate them! Give them to a charity shop, school or jumble sale.
  • Sell them! If your CDs aren’t damaged, you might want to put them back into circulation, either by trading them in at a local record dealer or on the internet.
