CDs and DVDs
Consider online streaming or purchase a digital copy.
Before you throw anything away why not see if it can be reused or upcycled? There are lots of ways this can be done:
Staffordshire recycling centres have a reuse area where items in good condition can be donated where they will be taken to the reuse shop located on the Cannock Recycling Centre.
Charity shops accept a wide variety of items. Please contact your local charity shop for more information on what they can accept. A number of charities in Staffordshire will happily collect your unwanted large household items if they are in good condition.
Reuse networks such as Freecycle, Freegle and Ecobees allow members to advertise goods for reuse or sharing through local groups and forums. Membership and advertising is free and everything offered must also be free.
There are a variety of online selling websites. Other options are advertising in the local paper, or notice boards in a newsagents or some supermarkets. If you have quite a few items why not consider a car boot sale?
How about being creative and turning an old item into something stylish? Old CDs and DVDs make great bird scarers to protect the vegetable garden.
Staffordshire's recycling centres accept CDs and DVDs and should be placed in the mixed media bin.
CD's and DVDs can be placed in your household general waste bin or taken to the recycling centre. Waste placed in the residual waste skip will be sent to one of Staffordshire’s energy recovery plants.
