CD Recycling Program
MAY 10 2010
DVD and CD
manufacturing company Precision Disc Manufacturing
Corp. has launched a new program to keep your
unwanted DVD and CD discs and cases out of your
With the knowledge that these
types of plastics
are not accepted by most community curbside
recycling services, Precision Disc will recycle
these materials for you as a part of their existing
in-house recycling program.
As a frontrunner in eco-friendly DVD and CD
packaging solutions, this is another
component to the company's commitment to
being the best global citizen it can be.
"It’s a simple yet
effective program.” explains the DVD and CD
duplication company’s Vice President Bruce
Durnie, “I’m not aware of any community-based
recycling programs that accept CDs, DVDs and their
plastic cases, so what are people doing when they
want to get rid of them? If you throw them into the
garbage they just end up in your local land-fill. To
prevent that from happening you can now send those
materials to us and we’ll recycle them through our
existing in-house recycling program and channels.”
Recycle your unwanted CDs and DVDs:
Put your unwanted
CDs and DVDs in a cardboard box, clearly mark “for
recycling” on the box and either drop the box off
or have it delivered to Precision Disc's
shipping/receiving bay door. They will add your
discs to their own disc recycling system and then
they’ll recycle the box too.
If you are shipping
the goods the responsibility for paying for the
shipment is yours – Precision Disc will not accept
C.O.D. or ‘collect’ shipments.
If you are
concerned about sensitive or personal data content
on your unwanted discs it is recommended that you
score or damage the data-side of the disc in a way
that prevents the information from being accessed.
Recycle your unwanted CD
and DVD Cases:
Put your unwanted
CD and DVD cases in a cardboard box, clearly mark
“for recycling” on the box and either drop the box
off or have it delivered to Precision Disc's
shipping/receiving bay door. They’ll add your
unwanted cases to their own recycling system and
then they will recycle the box too.
If you are shipping
the goods to the company, the responsibility for
paying for the shipment is yours as Precision Disc
will not accept C.O.D. or ‘collect’ shipments.
Please ensure that
all paper inserts and discs have been removed from
the cases. The paper inserts can be recycled in
your regular community-based program.
If you are sending
CD and DVD cases as well as discs, please ensure
that you supply the discs in a separate box.
As a DVD and CD
duplication company, Precision Disc Manufacturing
Corp. provides factory-direct disc manufacturing
services along with a wide range of eco-friendly
print and packaging solutions for their clients
throughout Canada and the USA.
Durnie continues, “As a company that specializes in
DVD and CD duplication we recognize our
responsibility to be a good global citizen so we’ve
been putting a strong emphasis on utilizing
environmentally-friendly equipment, materials and
processes for quite some time. We don’t just
talk-the-talk when it comes to being environmentally
responsible so we’re always looking for new ways to
enhance what we’ve already put in place and this DVD
CD recycling program is a good example of our
efforts to make a difference.”
