Audio cassettes

If your unwanted CDs are pre-recorded and still work, you can donate them to your local charity shop. There are also many on-line companies that offer a CD recycling service.

If you have CD's or DVD's to get rid of, consider the following options. 

CD's, DVD's and computer games in good condition can be put back into circulation.

You could:

  • ask family and friends if they would like them
  • to online to give them away at sites like Freecycle and Freegle
  • check locally - see if you have any community projects near you that may have use of them.

Or you could earn some cash, some websites where you can do this are:

Please not that some offer free postage, while others will charge you for this. 

You could also use them to do the following:

  • 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
