What to do with
CD's & DVD's
VHS tapes and cassettes are now rarely accepted at recycling centres and are generally sent to landfill. A company called Tip Top Media currently accepts old tapes for disposal but there may be a charge for this so please contact them for more information. If you have amounts to recycle, an alternative option is to purchase a zero waste box from Terracycle UK.
If you have CD's or DVD's to get rid of, consider the following options:
Get selling and make some money...
- CD's, DVD's and computer games in good condition can be put back into circulation and earn you some cash into the bargain! Simply search the internet with "sell CD's" to find companies like eBay, Music Magpie. Zapper, and Ziffit that offer this service. Be aware that some offer free postage, while others will charge you for this
What else can I do with them?
- Cut your discs into small pieces and use them to create a mosaic pattern on picture frames, flower pots or mirrors
- Hang them up in the garden - they not only look pretty spinning in the wind but make good bird scarers on the vegetable plot!
- Use the discs as coasters for drinks
