Some Target and Best Buy locations provide collection bins to recycle compact discs as of 2015. Unwanted discs can also be shipped to a CD recycling company such as Greendisk.
Locate other recycling centers through the CD Recycling Center of America using its website at cdrecyclingcenter.org. This company offers recycling methods for small and large quantities of compact discs. The discs are processed to a clear resin, which is then used by plastic manufacturers to produce new items.
The CD Recycling Center of America provides free services for the secure destruction of unwanted, obsolete or damaged discs. The group also provides free signs and posters to increase compact disc recycling awareness, which can be downloaded via links on their website.
