Every year, millions of CDs and DVDs are thrown away because they are either too worn to use or there is no need for them at local charities or nonprofits. Instead of tossing them, you can recycle them. The CD Recycling Center of America takes old CDs and DVDs (and their plastic cases) and grinds them down into recyclable plastic. This plastic is then recycled and made into industrial components used by the automotive and building materials industries. Visit cdrecyclingcenter.org for more information.
