CDs are plastic too!
We are a certified recycle and data destruction company that offers variety of destruction and recycling service free of charge.
We recycle all components of the average Compact Disc, and the stuff that comes with it such the jewel case and the paper booklet/paper inserts.
Once we received the compact discs from mail or pickup, we will separate them, then rinse the CDs,then shred the CDs with shredder into polycarbonate regrind(which is a type of valuable raw plastic material that can be used to manufacture items after it is further cleansed at the shipping destination.
Finally, we package the CD regrind into a 40 foot container along with the sorted jewel cases and paper inserts in boxes. From that point, they will be shipped to manufacturers to further process the material so it can be used to produce new CDs or everday goods made of plastic.
