Compact Disks (CDs), Digital Video Disks (DVDs), Video Cassettes and Other Recordable Media Devices

Digital media is usually made from plastic materials, many of which are recyclable. However, magnetic media doesn’t contain enough valuable components, especially the Mylar tape, to make recycling them worthwhile.

Other Reuse Options

Do you have a problem with birds attacking your fruit trees?  CD’s and video tape can be used to scare them away!  Tie the disks to the branches of the tree and the light reflected from the shiny side of the disks will help to keep your fruit trees safe.  Tie long pieces of video or cassette tape to branches as the wind blows the tape, the movement will frighten the birds away from your harvest.

Ever go hiking or backpacking?  Keep a CD in your pack to be used as a signal mirror, just in case you get lost!
