What to do with
CDs & DVDs
These discs are now collected at some local recycling centres but this service does vary across the country. Check with your local council.
If you have CDs or DVDs you longer need, consider the following options:
Charity shops often accept CDs and DVDs for re-sale.
CDs, DVDs and computer games in good condition can be sometimes be sold on sites like eBay, Music Magpie, Zapper and Ziffit that offer this service. Be aware that some offer free postage while others will charge.
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.
VHS tapes and cassettes are now rarely accepted at recycling centres and charity shops and are generally sent to landfill.
